These reassurance shields stand along rural US 6/PA 660 near the eastern split.

From US 6 westbound, a left turn onto PA 660 eastbound is a sharp one at this dangerous X-shaped intersection. To the right is SR 4002, the main road to the small town of Charleston. SR 4002 may be a former alignment of PA 660.

David also photographed the 6-ful directional signs on the PA 660 westbound approach to the eastern split. That's a lot of 6's.

Here is the eastbound approach to where US 6 and PA 660 split toward Mansfield and PA 660's eastern terminus in Covington.

At the eastern split, PA 660 veers due east while US 6 continues eastnortheastward. David tells that there is usually at least one cross located at the intersection to commemorate recent fatal accidents. The posted speed limits for both routes is 55 mph.

The eastern split is clearly marked with little white signs of all three routes. The lower sign shows SR 6 (US 6).

The white house in the middle of the splitting roadways may have once been next to a gas station. David points out that remnants of the gasoline island remain.

Ignoring the side road SR 4002, the US 6 and PA 660 meet and merge to form a Y shape. This old drive-in theatre is named for this configuration.

Bike Route Y follows US 6 across most of the state, including from here at the eastern split to the westernsplit in Wellsboro.

 


David Slauenwhite 3/02

Six miles to the west, US 6 and PA 660 split in downtown Wellsboro. Wellsboro has three duplexes (the three combinations of US 6, PA 287, and PA 660), and all three meet at this intersection.

David offers views of the triple-split intersection from all three directions. This second view shows the signs along PA 287 northbound/PA 660 eastbound as they split at the traffic signal.

 


David Slauenwhite 3/02

Here is a closer view of the same intersection along PA 287/PA 660, which is complete with a grassy median along the street. US 6/PA 287 shields can be seen right of center and that duplex continues forward. US 6/PA 660 turns right.

Finally, the third view is along US 6 eastbound/PA 287 southbound and shows these shields near the triple-split intersection.
