US 222(N-S)/PA 72(S-N)/PA 272(N-S, unsigned) Triplex

222 72 272

Pennsylvania Route 72 northbound joins the US 222/PA 272 southbound duplex for a block in Lancaster in Lancaster County.


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

Northbound on US 222/PA 272 in northern Lancaster. US 222 follows a one-way street to this point. The white car is on US 222 southbound, and here the two directions of US 222 split apart to follow one-way streets through the city. PA 272 is unsigned but implicitly follows US 222 through the city and here. A left turn here puts you on US 222 southbound, two blocks from PA 72.

Northbound on PA 72 in Lancaster. This one-way street parallels the one in the previous photo but is two blocks to the west. PA 72 has an interesting routing through Lancaster. This part of PA 72 north has no corresponding PA 72 south, that is, PA 72 south ends at the north side of the city while PA 72 north begins in the southern part of the city. The street ahead is US 222/PA 272 south.

PA 72 turns left onto US 222/PA 272 south, though there are no signs for PA 272.

Heading west on US 222/PA 272 south and PA 72 north. The triplex lasts only a block. This photo shows the scene in 2002.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/27/04

The intersection was reconstructed, and new signs went up by 2004.

 

 


Timothy Reichard 10/12/02

After a block, PA 72 north heads right on a two-way street. To the left, US 222/PA 272 heads south on one-way Prince Street. This intersection is also the southern end of PA 72 south, which enters from the right and stops here.
