Route description[edit]

Centre County[edit]

PA 64 begins at an intersection with PA 26 in Spring Township, Centre County at the point PA 26 turns north onto a freeway. From here, the route heads northeast on two-lane undivided East College Avenue, heading through farmland with a few quarries. The road heads through more open agricultural areas with some housing developments as it crosses into Walker Township and intersects the northern terminus of PA 550. At this point, PA 64 becomes Nittany Valley Drive and heads through more farmland and homes. Farther northeast, the route passes through Hublersburg and runs through more rural areas. The road heads through farmland with some woods and homes as it reaches a junction with the northern terminus of PA 445 in the residential community of Nittany.[1][2]

Clinton County[edit]

PA 64 enters Porter Township in Clinton County and runs through more rural residential areas, crossing Fishing Creek before passing through Lamar. After this, the road crosses the creek again and heads into agricultural areas before gaining a center left-turn lane as it interchanges with I-80/US 220 in a commercial area. Following this interchange, the route becomes a two-lane road again and runs through more open farmland with a few homes. PA 64 heads into Lamar Township and heads north-northeast. The road continues into wooded areas with some development, heading north onto Fernberg Road at Cedar Springs. The route intersects PA 477 and heads through a gap in forested Bald Eagle Mountain along with Fishing Creek and the US 220 freeway to the east, crossing into Mill Hall. PA 64 turns northwest and becomes South Water Street, passing between homes to the west and the Fishing Creek to the east. The road turns north and passes businesses along North Water Street, crossing a Nittany and Bald Eagle Railroad line. The route passes more residential and commercial establishments before ending at PA 150.[1][3]
