Pennsylvania Route 304 Truck (PA 304 Truck) is a 2.2-mile-long (3.5 km) truck route in and around Mifflinburg.[4] Narrow streets within the borough are avoided by this designation, and a complicated intersection with Pennsylvania Route 45, which does not contain turning lanes, is bypassed. The route is concurrent with other highways for its entire length: It is cosigned with PA 104 for the first 1.7 miles (2.7 km) of the route, and is designated SR 3004 (Red Ridge Road) for the remainder.[4] It is signed in the eastbound direction only, with the opposite direction signed as PA 45 Truck.[4]
