More photos from the PA 60 to I-376 conversion

On the heels of the photos that Jason Reighard sent me, Ed Szuba and his wife were out and about recently, and took a few more photos from the PA 60 to Interstate 376 conversion.  These photos have some personal interest to me as I spent three and a half years in the area from 1996-99 attending Robert Morris College (now University).



These signs at Exit 57 are the signs near Robinson Town Center - leave the area for ten years and you can forget these things.  I-376 and Business Loop 376 shields have now replaced PA 60 shields.  Will PA Turnpike 576 ever become Interstate 576?  Who knows.

Next up signs around the airport itself.


And some signs approaching the western end of Business Loop 376:


Further up the road now...I-376 mile markers appear.


And finally...when I was at RMC these signs were all text in button copy and had sequential numbering...now they are in Clearview and mileage based numbers for I-376.  What a difference 11 years makes, eh?



Thanks again to Ed and Shari for the photos and Jason Reighard for his in the earlier post.

I was through here eastbound last weekend. Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission still hadn't done anything to update the signage on their part of the road and some of the overheads eastbound still needed updating.

At the PA 18 interchange, PennDOT finally replaced the ancient button copy signs where traffic from I-376 east splits towards PA 18 north or south. The old signs were button copy with the route number spelled out (no shield). New ones have Clearview.
