Pennsylvania Route 89 (PA 89) is a 50-mile-long (80 km) north–south state highway located in northwestern Pennsylvania. The southern terminus of the route is at Pennsylvania Route 8 and Pennsylvania Route 27 in Titusville. The northern terminus is at Pennsylvania Route 5 north of North East.

Route description[edit]

PA 89 north of the junction with PA 430

PA 89 begins running north on Franklin Street in Titusville just after the PA 8/27 junction. PA 89 runs northeast out of the city before arcing back around to the north and passing through the town of Vrooman. The highway then bypasses Rome and Buells Corners to the east and then continues north through Hatchtown. West of Spartansburg, PA 89 forms a brief concurrency with PA 77. PA 89 then crosses over into Erie County.

PA 89 continues north to US 6, which it overlaps with from Lovell to Elgin. After splitting off to the north once again, the highway turns more northwest and meets Pennsylvania Route 8 south of Wattsburg. The two routes overlap through Wattsburg (where they meet the western terminus of PA 474) and split up in Lowville. At Colt Station, PA 89 crosses PA 430. North of the PA 430 junction, PA 89 has an interchange with Interstate 86 (exit 3). 4 miles (6 km) later, PA 89 has an interchange with Interstate 90 (exit 41). PA 89 then enters North East. There, it serves as the western terminus of PA 426 before crossing US 20. PA 89 then comes to an end at PA 5, near Lake Erie.

History[edit]

PA 89 was established in 1928.[citation needed] In 1930, the highway ran from U.S. Route 6 in Beaver Dam to U.S. Route 20 in North East. By 1941, PA 89 was extended south to the current southern terminus at Titusville. The northern terminus was also extended to Pennsylvania Route 5 in North East.[2][3]
