PA 770 Truck[edit]


PA Route 770 Truck
Location: Lafayette TownshipBradford Township
Length: 13 mi[citation needed] (21 km)
Existed: 1980[citation needed]–present

Pennsylvania Route 770 Truck is a 13-mile-long (21 km) truck route bypassing a segment of PA 770 where trucks over 10 tons are prohibited in McKean County. It begins at the PA 770 terminus in Lafayette Township. It ends at PA 770 in Bradford Township. The route is an oddity as it is longer than its main route (PA 770) by one mile, and that its only signed as such westbound, instead of both directions.[4] The entire route follows PA 59 on its western end, and US 219 on its eastern end.
