Pennsylvania Roads - PA 191

PA 191

NB with former PA 115 in Stockertown. If it's a state sign, it dates to the 1940's or earlier. If it's a town sign, it's robably still no newer than 1960. PA 191 itself also lost some mileage off the southern end, which was mostly absorbed into PA 378.

NB at the 1915 Pennsylvania Ave. bridge in Bangor, an accidental find while detouring on PA 512.

The view from the east (Main St.) side, then on the bridge itself.

Embossed but not as old. It's not the practice anymore in most places to add the route number to street signblades, at least for state highways (because the junctions tend to be signed with shields).

SB on the right and left sides of the road, near and far corners.

NB from the PA 196 split; the faded sign reads "St. Tikhon's Monastery" and PA 191 is then Lake Ariel Hwy.

NB with US 6 WB in Honesdale at a location where there is no street to turn on. It's the only such sign I saw, so there's not one pointing to every business.

Washed out but you get the idea, SB/EB as the two routes split. Cutout shields do not work well on white backgrounds.

Just before New York, there's one more shield and a 1937 plaque for the Hancock Bridge (ew). It's the last bridge on the West Branch Delaware River before the East Branch joins.

Northward into NY.

Looking east and west along the river. The west side features a separate, newer pedestrian bridge.

More identical bridge plaques on the north side, left and right.

The last SR marker along PA 191 is on the north side of the bridge, very much not in Pennsylvania but hinting at who maintains the span.
