Former bypasses[edit]

Philadelphia bypass[edit]


U.S. Route 1 Bypass
Location: Swarthmore-Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

U.S. Route 1 Bypass (US 1 Byp.) was a bypass of a segment of US 1 from Swarthmore to Philadelphia in Pennsylvania. US 1 Byp. began at US 1 (Baltimore Pike) north of Swarthmore, heading north concurrent with PA 320. The route split from PA 320 by turning northeast onto State Road. US 1 Byp. continued northeast along Township Line Road, becoming concurrent with US 13 Byp. and intersecting PA 3 in Llanerch. The two routes continued northeast and became City Avenue, forming the border between Montgomery County to the northwest and Philadelphia to the southeast. Along City Avenue, the bypass route intersected US 30 Byp. (Haverford Road/Avenue), US 30, and PA 23 (Conshohocken State Road/Conshohocken Avenue). Upon crossing the Schuylkill River, the bypass routes intersected US 309 (Lincoln Drive) and US 422 Alt. (Ridge Avenue) and continued east along East River Drive. US 1 Byp./US 13 Byp. continued northeast along Hunting Park Avenue, intersecting US 309 Truck (Germantown Avenue) before ending at US 1/US 13/US 611 (Broad Street). US 1/US 13 continued northeast at this point on Roosevelt Boulevard.[55] US 1 Byp. was first designated by 1940 to run from Swarthmore to Northeast Philadelphia, continuing past Broad Street along Roosevelt Boulevard.[56] By 1950, the Roosevelt Boulevard became mainline US 1.[55] US 1 Byp. was decommissioned by 1960, having been replaced with mainline US 1 along State Road, Township Line Road, City Avenue, and Hunting Park Avenue.[57]
