U.S. Route 322 Business is a 9-mile (14 km) business loop of U.S. 322 in Centre County, Pennsylvania. Its western terminus is at an interchange with I-99, U.S. 322, and U.S. 220 near State College; its eastern terminus is at U.S. 322 near Boalsburg.

U.S. Route 322 Business was signed at U.S. Route 322 until 1981, when the Mount Nittany Expressway, a freeway bypass of U.S. 322, was constructed north of State College.[2][3]

U.S. Route 322 Business serves as the main east-west thoroughfare in State College, and the section in State College is named Atherton Street in honor of George W. Atherton, former president of the Pennsylvania State University.
