Pennsylvania Route 655 (PA 655) is an 83-mile-long (134 km) north–south state highway located in central Pennsylvania. The southern terminus of the route is at the Mason–Dixon line in Thompson Township, where the road becomes a local road (Pennsylvania Avenue) in Hancock, Maryland. The northern terminus is at old U.S. Route 322 in Reedsville.

History[edit]

Most of PA 655 was once Pennsylvania Route 76. From 1930 to Spring 1964, PA 76 occupied what is now PA 655 from the Maryland state line to Pennsylvania Route 829 in Cass Township, as well as PA 829 from Cass Township to Mill Creek and PA 655 from Mill Creek to Reedsville. The section of present PA 655 between Saltillo and Mill Creek was designated part of PA 376. In spring 1964, PA 655 was assigned to its current alignment, replacing the PA 76 and PA 376 designations. This change was made to remove numbering conflicts that resulted from the designation of I-76 and I-376 in Pennsylvania.[1]
