Pennsylvania Route 29 (PA 29) is a 118-mile-long (190 km) north–south state highway that runs through most of eastern Pennsylvania. The route currently exists in two segments, a southern segment and a northern segment. The southernmost terminus of the designation is at U.S. Route 30 in Malvern. The northernmost end is at the New York-Pennsylvania border near Brookdale, Pennsylvania, where the route becomes New York State Route 7.

The route was continuous until 1966, when Route 29 was split into the two segments that exist today.

The southernmost 5 miles (8.0 km) of PA 29's northern segment is a limited-access highway known as the South Cross Valley Expressway.

Route description[edit]

Southern section[edit]

Chester County[edit]

The southern section of PA 29 begins at an intersection with US 30 near the borough of Malvern in East Whiteland Township, Chester County, heading north on six-lane divided South Morehall Road. The road passes businesses and office parks, curving northwest and coming to an interchange with the US 202 freeway. The route passes to the west of the Penn State Great Valley Campus and becomes North Morehall Road, narrowing to four lanes and heading to the west of the Great Valley Corporate Center. PA 29 runs through wooded areas before curving north and passing through more of the Great Valley Corporate Center. The road runs between a quarry to the west and a lake to the east before it comes to an E-ZPass-only ramp providing access to the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-76). Past here, the route becomes undivided passes near more commercial development, crossing into Charlestown Township and curving northwest. The road passes under the Pennsylvania Turnpike and crosses an abandoned railroad line before it comes to the community of Devault.[3][4]

At this point, PA 29 turns north onto two-lane undivided State Road and runs through wooded areas with the abandoned railroad parallel to the east. The road curves northwest and passes to the west of a quarry before continuing through forests. The route turns north and passes through the community of Aldham before it makes a curve to the northeast and crosses the Pickering Creek. PA 29 passes under the abandoned railroad line and enters Schuylkill Township, heading through a mix of woods and fields with some homes parallel to the creek. The road turns east and then northeast, heading away from the Pickering Creek and continuing into suburban residential development. The route becomes the border between the borough of Phoenixville to the northwest and Schuylkill Township to the southeast before fully entering Phoenixville as Main Street, passing homes. PA 29 heads to the east of Phoenixville Hospital before it comes to an intersection with PA 23, at which point Main Street splits to the north and PA 29 continues northeast along Manavon Street. The route continues through residential areas, turning north onto Starr Street. PA 29 heads north into the commercial downtown of Phoenixville, where it turns east onto Bridge Street. The route continues east and passes under Norfolk Southern's Harrisburg Line before it comes to the Mont Clare Bridge over the Schuylkill River.[3][4]

The road runs past a mix of homes and businesses, passing under an abandoned railroad line. The route continues through residential areas before heading into a mix of fields and woods with some homes. PA 29 passes southeast of a golf course and becomes South Collegeville Road, passing near business parks and widening to four lanes. The road becomes a divided highway and comes to an interchange with the US 422 freeway. Past this interchange, the route becomes a six-lane divided highway and runs between the Providence Town Center to the northwest and office parks to the southeast.

In the community of Rahns, PA 29 comes to an intersection with PA 113. Past this junction, the road runs through more woodland with some residential and commercial development west of the creek, passing through the community of Graterford. The route continues north alongside the Perkiomen Creek and bends northwest, coming to an intersection with PA 73. At this point, PA 29 begins a concurrency with PA 73 and the two routes head into the borough of Schwenskville on Main Street, heading past homes and businesses and curving to the north. Farther north, the road becomes the border between Schwenksville to the west and Lower Frederick Township to the east, running between wooded neighborhoods to the west and the Perkiomen Creek and Perkiomen Trail to the east. The two routes cross Swamp Creek to fully enter Lower Frederick Township and become Gravel Pike, running through wooded areas with some homes.

At this point, PA 29 heads west concurrent with the northbound direction of US 11 on a divided highway with one northbound lane and two southbound lanes, heading through wooded areas to the north of the Susquehanna River. The southbound direction of US 11 merges in and US 11/PA 29 continue west as two-lane undivided East Poplar Street through woods before heading past homes and businesses in the community of West Nanticoke, gaining a center left-turn lane and curving northwest.

History[edit]

Original route[edit]

PA 29 was created and first signed in 1928. During this time, construction began on the segment between Tunkhannock north to Springville. A year later, the stretch between Tunkhannock and Lemon, midway Tunkhannock and Springville, opened to traffic. Lemon to Springville opened the following year, in 1930.

In 1934, work started on the section between US 6 in Tunkhannock and Franklin Forks, located midway between Montrose and the state border. The construction was complete by the following year. In 1936, two major sections of the route, stretching between Evans Falls to Rosengrants, near Tunkhannock, and from Franklin Forks to the state line, were paved. A subsequent project united PA 29 into a single route, completing the road from Hazleton to Tunkhannock. PA 29 and PA 113 switched alignments between Phoenixville and Rahns in 1937, with PA 29 now following its present alignment between those two places.[12][13]

Two years later, the section from Rosengrants to Tunkhannock was paved. In 1940, the section between Bowmans Creek and Evans Falls was paved.

The first realignment of the route came in 1946 when PA 29 was routed to its current position between West Nanticoke and Silkworth, shifting the route from Cragle Hill Road and Swamp Road to U.S. Route 11 from Shickshinny to West Nanticoke. This routing replaced Pennsylvania Route 139.

The route was split in 1966, eliminating a number of overlaps that linked the two segments.

Post-split[edit]

In 1969, construction began on the South Cross Valley Expressway between Sugar Notch and the Nanticoke interchange. The expressway was extended to Interstate 81 in 1971 and opened in 1972.

Prior to construction of the US 202 expressway in 1970, PA 29 travelled entirely on Phoenixville Pike between Phoenixville and West Chester. PA 29 entered West Chester on Goshen Road and Marshall Street ending at PA 100 in town. When the US 202 expressway was built, PA 29 was rerouted onto Morehall Road at Devault and ran south to junction US 202 and then end at US 30.[1] There are still today numerous road signs on Phoenixville Pike between Frazer and West Chester that label the road as PA 29.

In 1978, PA 29 was re-signed to the northern segment of the route after 12 years of not having a designation. The southern terminus was moved from West Nanticoke to the current end at I-81 exit 164 in Ashley.

There are future plans to extend the South Cross Valley Expressway in 2009.

On December 11, 2012, an E-ZPass only interchange opened with the Pennsylvania Turnpike.[14]
