From what I am seeing, the Exit 19 designation for I-79 NB on PA 576 WB may have to do with how it is planned to be signed EB at the Morganza Rd interchange.

Did anyone see any signage for the I-79 NB/Morganza Rd interchange installed yet? 

EDIT (10-14-2021):  I am planning to go 18 at I-79 and 19 at Morganza Rd unless I see evidence that I should do something different.

I went on it this morning after it opened eastbound (counterclockwise).  There are signs covered up at the I-79 interchange that I assume will be for Exit 19 (I-79 N/Morganza Road) in line with the map on the project site since all other relevant signs appear to be uncovered.

I didn’t get the chance to ride in the other direction (I-79 N to PA 576 W toward the airport), but it looked like crews were getting ready to open the exit not long after I went through.  All other interchanges along the Beltway appeared to be fully open.

Updates made locally.  I am looking to find clarification on the I-79 Exit Number before proceeding with the pull request.

The only signs I am waiting to see photographed.  I had hope for a second when I saw you were posting...

I am going to go back through there in a little bit (I live a few minutes away), so I’ll report back.

The exit number on I-79 north is 49.  Any signs for the unopened movements are still covered up.

UPDATE: The first picture in the gallery with this article shows I-79 North signed as Exit 19.

I’m uploading some dash cam footage tonight that I can share on the forum, in which I also learned that I need to wash my windshield after some clinching earlier in the week in northern PA.

Thank you.  The pull request has been submitted (https://github.com/TravelMapping/HighwayData/pull/5220).

I placed two points (49 and 49A) since the interchange is so huge. 

EDIT:  I also clarified the 49 number via video.
