Map showing all locations mentioned on Wikipedia article:

In the U.S. state of Pennsylvaniamarker, U.S. Route 30 runs east-west across the southern part of the state, passing through Pittsburghmarker and Philadelphiamarker on its way from the West Virginiamarker state line east to the Benjamin Franklin Bridge over the Delaware River into New Jerseymarker. In Pennsylvania, US 30 runs along or near the transcontinental Lincoln Highway, which ran from San Francisco, Californiamarker to New York Citymarker before the U.S. Routes were designated. (However, the Lincoln Highway turned northeast at Philadelphia, using present U.S. Route 1 and its former alignments to cross the Delaware River into Trenton, New Jerseymarker.)

Popular places along the route include the Gettysburg Battlefieldmarker, Dutch Wonderlandmarker, the Flight 93 National Memorialmarker, Fort Ligoniermarker, Jennerstown Speedwaymarker, and Idlewild and Soak Zonemarker.

Route description

West Virginia to Pittsburgh

US 30 presently crosses from West Virginiamarker into Pennsylvania near Chester, West Virginiamarker. It is a surface road from West Virginia to the U.S. Route 22 junction southeast of Imperialmarker. There it joins the US 22 freeway to form the Penn-Lincoln Parkway West, which is also Interstate 376 east of Interstate 79, into downtown Pittsburgh.

Through Pittsburgh

30 currently passes through Pittsburghmarker on the Penn-Lincoln Parkway, crossing the Monongahela River on the Fort Pitt Bridge. This freeway was built from 1953 to 1960 as a bypass for both the Lincoln Highway and the William Penn Highway (U.S. Route 22). It now carries US 22 and US 30, as well as Interstate 376.

At a point beyond the Squirrel Hill Tunnel, at the southern end of PA Route 8, US 30 leaves the Parkway, which continues as I-376/US 22 to Monroeville.

Pittsburgh to Lancaster

Much of this section of U.S. 30 (and the Lincoln Highway) has been supplanted by the Pennsylvania Turnpike (which is Interstate 76 between the Ohio border and the Valley Forge exit). From the Pittsburgh area, US 30 heads east through Greensburgmarker, where it intersects U.S. Route 119. It then heads into Somerset Countymarker, where it meets U.S. Route 219 east of Jennerstownmarker.

On September 11, 2001 United Airlines Flight 93marker crashed in an empty field about two miles (3 km) south of U.S. 30, near Shanksvillemarker in Somerset County. The heroism of the passengers and crew apparently thwarted the hijackers' plan to crash into either the US Capitol Buildingmarker or the White Housemarker in Washington DCmarker. There is a temporary memorial at the site while a new permanent Flight 93 National Memorialmarker is planned.

route continues east into Bedford Countymarker, where it heads toward Bedfordmarker, the site of the route’s intersection with U.S. Route 220 a short distance south of the southern beginning of Interstate 99 at the Pennsylvania Turnpike interchange. Past Bedford, the route closely follows the Pennsylvania Turnpike, passing through Everettmarker. It then passes through the infamous town of Breezewood, Pennsylvaniamarker, where Interstate 70 traffic must still use a short non-interstate section of U.S. 30 to go between the turnpike (which is I-70/76 to the west of Breezewood and to the east of New Stanton) and I-70 going to Marylandmarker.

The route then climbs through the Allegheny Mountains as it passes through Fulton Countymarker, intersecting U.S. Route 522 in McConnellsburgmarker. It then enters the scenic Cumberland Valley in Franklin Countymarker, where it passes through Chambersburgmarker, crossing U.S. Route 11 and Interstate 81. The highway then crosses the South Mountain range through the Cashtown Gap and enters Adams Countymarker. West of Gettysburg, U.S. 30 follows much of the path of the old Chambersburg Turnpike (from Gettysburg to Cashtownmarker), a route used by much of Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia during the Gettysburg Campaign. The route serves as the main east-west artery through Gettysburgmarker, traversing the northwestern portion of the Gettysburg Battlefieldmarker and also intersecting U.S. Route 15. Past Gettysburg, Route 30 travels through Guldens and New Oxfordmarker before entering York Countymarker.

Just west of York, Route 30 branches off of PA 462 to bypass the cities of Yorkmarker and Lancastermarker. Several modifications to improve flow have been made in York but the route is still congested due to a series of traffic signals. It then crosses the Susquehanna River on the Wright's Ferry Bridgemarker into Lancaster Countymarker. Along the north side of Lancaster, US 30 intersects the eastern terminus of Pennsylvania Route 283, which heads to Harrisburgmarker and shares a brief concurrency with U.S. Route 222. From 1997 to 2004 significant work was completed to the bypass around Lancaster. Just east of Lancaster, the eastern end of PA 462 meets with U.S. 30 on its way to Philadelphia.

Lancaster to Philadelphia

.S. 30 follows the route of the Philadelphia and Lancaster Turnpikemarker, the first long-distance, paved road built in the United States, between Lancaster and Philadelphiamarker. Between the east end of the bypass around York and Lancaster and the west end of the Coatesville Bypass in Chester Countymarker, there is a large freeway gap between these two segments that is frequently congested. PennDOT is under study to improve this last remaining section. [255786] This section passes through Pennsylvania Dutch Country and is lined with many Amish tourist attractions. Between Sadsbury Townshipmarker and East Whiteland Townshipmarker, US 30 follows the limited-access Coatesville Bypass with U.S. Route 30 Business running along the former alignment through Coatesvillemarker, Downingtownmarker, and Extonmarker. Along the bypass, US 30 intersects U.S. Route 322 near Downingtown. At the east end of the bypass, it intersects U.S. Route 202 and heads east on Lancaster Avenue.

then heads through the Main Line suburbs of Philadelphiamarker, so named as they were located along the Pennsylvania Railroad Main Line. Within this area, the route passes through northern Delaware Countymarker, intersects with Interstate 476 and passes through Villanova Universitymarker in Radnor Townshipmarker, then crosses into Montgomery Countymarker in Lower Merion Townshipmarker (except for a few hundred yards where the road briefly re-enters Delaware County in Haverfordmarker) before entering Philadelphia.

Through Philadelphia

30 then crosses U.S. Route 1 (City Avenue) into Philadelphia. In the city, it makes a left turn onto Girard Avenue and meets U.S. Route 13 and Interstate 76 (Schuylkill Expressway) near the Philadelphia Zoomarker. US 30 then follows I-76 east and Interstate 676 (Vine Street Expressway) through Center Citymarker to the Ben Franklin Bridge, which carries I-676 and US 30 over the Delaware River into New Jerseymarker.


The path of the Lincoln Highway was first laid out in September 1913; it was defined to run through Canton, Ohiomarker, Beaver Fallsmarker, Pittsburghmarker, Greensburgmarker, Ligoniermarker, Bedfordmarker, Chambersburgmarker, Gettysburgmarker, Yorkmarker, Lancastermarker and Philadelphia, Pennsylvaniamarker, and Camden, New Jerseymarker. This bypassed Harrisburgmarker to the south, and thus did not use the older main route across the state between Chambersburgmarker and Lancastermarker. From Pittsburgh to Philadelphia, this incorporated a number of old turnpikes, some of which still collected tolls:

This original 1913 path of the Lincoln Highway continued east from Philadelphia, crossing the Delaware River to Camden, New Jerseymarker on the Market Street Ferry. The city of Philadelphia marked the route from the ferry landing west on Market Street through downtown and onto Lancaster Avenue to the Philadelphia and Lancaster Turnpikemarker in early 1914. By 1915 Camden was dropped from the route, allowing the highway to cross the Delaware on a bridge at Trenton (initially the Calhoun Street Bridgemarker, later the Bridge Street Bridge).

In 1924, the entire Lincoln Highway in Pennsylvania was designated Pennsylvania Route 1. In late 1926 the route from West Virginia to Philadelphia (using the new route west of Pittsburgh) was assigned U.S. Route 30, while the rest of the Lincoln Highway and PA 1 became part of U.S. Route 1. The PA 1 designation was gone by 1929, but several branches from east to west - PA Route 101, PA Route 201, PA Route 301, PA Route 401, PA Route 501 and PA Route 601 - had been assigned by then. (PA Route 701 was assigned later as a branch of PA 101.)

Ohio to Pittsburgh

As defined in 1913, the Lincoln Highway ran east-northeast from Canton, Ohiomarker to Alliancemarker and east via Salemmarker, crossing into Pennsylvania just east of East Palestinemarker. From there it continued southeasterly to Beaver Falls, Pennsylvaniamarker, crossing the Beaver River there and heading south along its left bank to Rochestermarker and the Ohio River's right bank to Pittsburghmarker.

By 1915, the highway had been realigned to the route it would follow until the end of 1927. It ran east from Canton, Ohiomarker to Lisbonmarker and then southeast to East Liverpoolmarker on the Ohio River. After crossing into Pennsylvania, it turned north away from the river at Smiths Ferry, taking an inland route to Beavermarker, where it rejoined the Ohio River. It crossed the Beaver River into Rochestermarker, joining the 1913 alignment, and turned south with the Ohio to Pittsburghmarker.

This route entered Pennsylvania along PA Route 68. After crossing Little Beaver Creek, it turned south on Main Street, passing under the Cleveland and Pittsburgh Railroad (PRR) into Glasgowmarker. After passing through that community on Liberty Street, the highway turned north and passed under the railroad again at Smiths Ferry, merging with Smiths Ferry Road. This alignment through Glasgow carried the Lincoln Highway until ca. 1926, when the present PA 68 was built on the north side of the railroad.

The Lincoln Highway left the banks of the Ohio River on Smiths Ferry Road, which includes an old stone bridge over Upper Dry Run. It turned east on Tuscarawas Road through Ohiovillemarker, entering Beavermarker on Fourth Street and turning south on Buffalo Street to reach Third Street (PA Route 68). By 1929 this inland Glasgow-Beaver route was numbered PA Route 168, while the route along the river — never followed by the Lincoln Highway — was PA 68.

Where PA 68 - Third Street — crosses the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad from Beaver into Bridgewatermarker, soon crossing the Beaver River on the ca. 1963 Rochester-Bridgewater Bridge, the Lincoln Highway instead ran along Bridge Street, just to the north, and crossed the Old Rochester-Bridgewater Bridge into Rochestermarker.

Continuing through Rochestermarker to Pittsburghmarker, the Lincoln Highway left the Old Rochester-Bridgewater Bridge on Madison Street, turning onto Brighton Avenue, and then crossing the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railway (PRR) on New York Avenue. After running alongside the Ohio River on Railroad Avenue, the highway crossed the railroad again in Freedommarker (about a block north of Third Street), running through Freedom on Third Avenue.

South of downtown Freedom, Third Avenue merges into PA Route 65, which runs along the old Lincoln Highway into Conwaymarker. There a section of old highway is First Avenue and State Street, rejoining PA 65 in Badenmarker. Further into Baden, PA 65 splits again, and the old highway splits onto State Street, becoming Duss Avenue in Harmony Townshipmarker. At the Ambridgemarker limits, this becomes PA Route 989, but the old highway turned west at 14th Street and then south on Merchant Street.

Crossing Big Sewickley Creek from Ambridgemarker, Beaver Countymarker into Leetsdalemarker, Allegheny Countymarker, Merchant Street becomes Beaver Street, a brick road. Beaver Road and Beaver Street continues through Edgeworthmarker, Sewickleymarker, and Osbornemarker, merging back into PA 65 at the border with Haysvillemarker. Sewickley officially changed the name of its piece to Lincoln Highway by an ordinance in January 1916, and Osborne, Edgeworth and Leetsdale soon followed suit, but that name is no longer used.

In Glenfieldmarker, the highway crossed the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railway (PRR) twice, once near the present overpass and again west of Toms Run Road. The old road next to the Ohio River - Beaver Street — is still a yellow brick road, now used only by local traffic.

The old road leaves PA 65 again in Emsworthmarker as Beaver Road, becoming Brighton Road in Ben Avonmarker before re-merging with PA 65. It splits yet again, also in Ben Avon, onto Brighton Road, another yellow brick road. In Avalonmarker it is California Avenue, and in Bellevuemarker it is Lincoln Avenue, coincidentally named after Lincoln soon after the U.S. Civil War.

The highway crosses into Pittsburghmarker on a high concrete arch bridge over Jack's Run, built in 1924 to replace an earlier bridge built for a streetcar line, and returns to the California Avenue name. It crosses Woods Run on a similar 1928 bridge next to a newer bridge built for the Ohio River Boulevard (PA Route 65). Where California Avenue curves away from PA 65, the Lincoln Highway continued next to it on Chateau Street, turning east on Western Avenue and then south on Galveston Avenue onto the 1915 Manchester Bridge to the Pointmarker.

The Boulevard of the Allies opened east from downtown Pittsburgh in 1923, and in 1924 it was designated as an alternate route. At least in 1930, this bypass ran along the Boulevard of the Allies, Forbes Avenue, Beeler Street, Wilkins Avenue and Dallas Avenue, rejoining the Lincoln Highway at Penn Avenue, west of Wilkinsburgmarker.

From Rochestermarker to Pittsburghmarker, the pre-December 1927 Lincoln Highway generally parallels the ca. 1930 Ohio River Boulevard (PA Route 65). Outside Allegheny Countymarker, present PA 65 was PA Route 837 by 1929. However, during the time that the Lincoln Highway ran through Rochester, the Rochester-Pittsburgh segment was locally maintained. It was often foggy, and a July 1926 Lincoln Highway Association road report states that it was "paved city streets, mostly poor", in stark contrast to the good paving east of Pittsburgh. By 1924, reports recommended following an alternate on the other side of the river between Pittsburgh and Rochester.

The route west of Rochester had similar problems; it was a dirt road, despite being a state highway. By 1922 an official detour was recommended via Beaver Fallsmarker and East Palestine, Ohiomarker, largely identical to the initial 1913 plan. Work began in the mid-1920s on a new route to the south, passing through West Virginiamarker and bypassing the problematic sections on both sides of Rochester; the Lincoln Highway was moved to it December 2, 1927. This new route had already been numbered US 30 in late 1926.

The new Lincoln Highway bypassed the community of Imperialmarker on a bypass built for it. Just southeast of Imperial, the highway turned east on Steubenville Pike, joining what was U.S. Route 22 before the present freeway was built ca. 1964. Steubenville Pike runs along the north side of the freeway, crossing to the south side and then merging with it just west of the PA Route 60 interchange.

At PA 60, US 22 and US 30 turn southeast, but the Lincoln Highway (and US 22/30 before the Penn-Lincoln Parkway West opened in 1953) continued east with PA 60 through Robinson Township. In 1950, the Twin Hi-Way Drive-In Theater opened along the Robinson Township stretch, its name derived from the road's former designation of dual U.S. Route 22/30. Through Craftonmarker, the highway used Steuben Street, Noble Avenue, Dinsmore Avenue, and Crafton Boulevard, now northbound PA 60. In Pittsburgh, the highway ran along Crafton Boulevard, Noblestown Road, and South Main Street, as PA 60 still does. It turned onto Carson Street (now PA Route 837) at the West End Circle, crossing the 1927 Point Bridge into the Pointmarker.

From 1915 to late 1927, the Lincoln Highway crossed the Allegheny River on the Manchester Bridge to the Pointmarker, touching down at the foot of Penn Avenue after meeting the Point Bridge. It made its way through downtown to Bigelow Boulevard (now PA Route 380), possibly using Water Street, Liberty Avenue and Seventh Avenue. It continued to follow present PA 380 onto Craig Street and Baum Boulevard to East Libertymarker. The highway left East Liberty and Pittsburgh on Penn Avenue - the old Pittsburgh and Greensburg Turnpike, also part of PA 380, and further east part of PA Route 8. (PA 380 however bypasses the center of East Liberty.)

The Lincoln Highway left the Pittsburghmarker area along the old Pittsburgh and Greensburg Turnpike (now U.S. Route 30) from Greensburgmarker. The borough of White Oakmarker had named their main street Lincoln Way in an attempt to convince the Lincoln Highway Association to use it, but instead the Highway continued along the old turnpike to North Versaillesmarker.

In North Versailles, the Lincoln Highway and old turnpike left current US 30 onto the road named Greensburg Pike, heading downhill into Turtle Creekmarker. The original bridge over Turtle Creek and the Pennsylvania Railroad main line curved right and ran to Airbrake Avenue west of 11th Street; a 1925 replacement continued straight to meet Airbrake Avenue at Monroeville Avenue. The alignment continued west on Penn Avenue, turning south at Braddock Avenue. (The old turnpike left the Lincoln Highway there, cutting southwest to cross the railroad at McDonald Street, and then heading northwest along Penn Avenue Extension and Greensburg Pike.) After a short while on Braddock Avenue, the Lincoln Highway turned northwest on Electric Avenue, which becomes Ardmore Boulevard to Wilkinsburgmarker. The George Westinghouse Bridgemarker opened in 1932 as a bypass of the grades into and out of Turtle Creek, running from the Greensburg Pike in North Versailles to Ardmore Boulevard in Chalfantmarker.

The Lincoln Highway joined the William Penn Highway and rejoined the Greensburg Turnpike at Penn Avenue in Wilkinsburg. After entering Pittsburgh and crossing the Pennsylvania Railroad main line, it turned west on Baum Boulevard, following present Route 380 onto Craig Street and Bigelow Boulevard to downtown.

Chester County business loop

U.S. Route 30 Business is a business route of U.S. Route 30 in Chester Countymarker, Pennsylvaniamarker and is signed as "SR 3070". The route preserves the former alignment of US 30 between Sadsbury Townshipmarker and East Whiteland Townshipmarker. U.S. Route 30 follows a limited-access bypass between these two points.

U.S. Route 30 Business runs east from the west end of the US 30 bypass in Sadsbury Township on the Lincoln Highway, a short distance east of Pennsylvania Route 10. It heads east into Valley Townshipmarker and into the city of Coatesvillemarker. In Coatesville, US 30 Business shares a brief concurrency with Pennsylvania Route 82. It runs through the heart of the city before crossing into Caln Townshipmarker. Through Caln Township, between Coatesville and Downingtownmarker, the route parallels the Amtrak Philadelphia to Harrisburg Main Line to the north. In Thorndalemarker, US 30 Business intersects the eastern terminus of Pennsylvania Route 340.

30 Business continues into Downingtown, where it is known as Lancaster Avenue. In the center of Downingtown, the route features a brief concurrency with U.S. Route 322. The route then runs concurrent with U.S. Route 322 Truck, which provides a truck bypass of a low clearance underpass on US 322. The two routes intersect the southern termini of both Pennsylvania Route 282 and Pennsylvania Route 113 before splitting and the intersection with Quarry Road in East Caln Townshipmarker, where US 322 Truck turns south. At that intersection, US 30 Business features an interchange with the US 30 bypass, with access to and from eastbound US 30 provided by Quarry Road.

The road then enters West Whiteland Townshipmarker, where it resumes the name of Lincoln Highway. In Extonmarker, it intersects Pennsylvania Route 100 near the Exton Square Mallmarker. U.S. Route 30 Business then continues into East Whiteland Township, where it ends at an interchange with the eastern end of the US 30 bypass and the U.S. Route 202 expressway.
