PA: PA 48 Truck and US 19 Truck pt req
« on: May 07, 2024, 10:39:44 am »
Finally through with my 1,675-mile trip updates from this weekend. I didn't see on the TM map PA 48 Truck near Elizabeth and McKeesport. I did a search on here but found nothing about it so I don't know if it was discussed in the past. Signage seems to have been on GSV since at least 2022 and can confirm signs are still present as of this weekend.

It basically bypasses the whole southern half of PA 48. The northbound travel direction starts at the southern terminus of PA 48, goes north on PA 51, exits at the Elizabeth exit (south of the bridge), heads along the east shore of the Monongahela to the Clairton-Glassport Bridge, north on PA 837, crosses the McKeesport-Duquesne Bridge, heads south on PA 148, runs fully concurrent with PA 148 Truck, and returns to PA 148 southbound to end at PA 48.

General map of the route, the highlighted portions are the only new part not already in TM. Specifically I'd like to request a point at Lovedale Road NE of Elizabeth (40.27884, -79.87533) as I turned off there and was the recommended direction for the bonus post-SWPA25 meet itinerary.

I'd also like to request a point on US19TrkPit at Cape May Avenue in Pittsburgh (40.40844, -80.01775; within the WenAve <-> PA51_S segment) as I used that turnoff to see the steepest street in the US.

I never added PA 48 TRUCK because it was supposed to be for a weight-restricted bridge that is now not weight-restricted.  District 11 never removed the signs for some reason.

I will look into the point requests in a bit.

PA 48 Point Request:  There is already a point at BroDr next to Lovedale Rd.  I suggest that you use that one.
