PA 254 begins at an intersection with PA 405 in Milton, Northumberland County, heading east on two-lane undivided Broadway Street. The road passes through the commercial downtown, crossing a Norfolk Southern railroad line and heading into residential areas. The road heads into Turbot Township and becomes Broadway, reaching an interchange with the PA 147 freeway. Past this, PA 254 becomes an unnamed road and runs through agricultural areas with some woods and homes. The road comes to an interchange with I-80, at which point it is a four-lane divided highway, before turning back into a two-lane undivided road and heading northeast through open farmland with occasional residences. The route heads east-northeast into Limestone Township in Montour County and becomes Broadway, running through more rural areas. PA 254 enters Derry Township and becomes Washingtonville Road, crossing the Chillisquaque Creek before coming to an intersection with PA 54 to the south of Washingtonville. The road heads northeast through more farmland with some woods and homes, turning to the east.[1][2]
