PA 856[edit]

PA Route 856
Location: FreedomEmsworth
Existed: 1928–1976

Pennsylvania Route 856 (PA 856) was a state route that ran from PA 65 in Freedom in Beaver County southeast to another intersection with PA 65 in Emsworth in Allegheny County. PA 856 headed east from PA 65 in Freedom and had an intersection with PA 989 before it left Beaver County for Allegheny County. At this point, the route curved southeast and then south before it passed through Franklin Park. PA 856 continued south to its end at PA 65 in Emsworth.[62]

The route was designated in 1928 to run from PA 857 (now PA 65) in Freedom east to Knob along an unpaved road.[3][41] PA 856 was paved by 1930.[41] In the 1930s, the route was extended from Knob southeast to PA 88 (now PA 65) in Emsworth, with a portion of road north of Emsworth replacing PA 989.[40] PA 856 was decommissioned in 1976 due to the completion of the parallel I-79 in the area.[63] The state continued to maintain the former alignment of PA 856. Two years after the route was decommissioned, local residents complained about lack of snow removal and felt that PennDOT had abandoned the road when they removed the PA 856 designation. However, the state reminded the residents that they still maintain the road and that snow removal along the former route was secondary to more important routes, in addition to suggesting local municipalities can take over snow removal.[64]

Pennsylvania Route 909 (PA 909) was a 6-mile state road that ran across and parallel to the Allegheny River through Oakmont, Plum, New Kensington and Lower Burrell, northeast of Pittsburgh.

Although officially decommissioned in 1946, a signpost at the intersection of Logan's Ferry and Coxcomb Hill Roads shows the latter road as ROUTE 909.
