1936 PA PennDOT Road Plans for Route 40
From west of Scenery Hill PA to Pancake PA
Washington County PA
Transcribed by Judith Florian
The map "6200400270003.TIF" only gives Slopes and Right of Way Measurements in 1936 with details for each landowner's property. These landowners are already listed. The map is included as part of the 1936 plans for 'moving' Route 40 (formerly LR 113) either to the North or to the South at many points along Rt. 40 East between Pancake PA and Rt. 519 intersection.
The details cannot be reproduced on this website,
but you can view both
(Map "6200400270003.TIF") and (Map "6200400270004.TIF").
SOURCE: 1936 "Pennsylvania Department of Transportation [PennDOT] Drawing [Plans] for Construction and Condemnation of Right Away Route No. 113 [Now Rt. 40] Section No. 9B in Washington County PA From Sta. 1524+00 to Sta. 1789+20". These plans were prepared prior to 'straightening' major curves of the original Federally owned road, which was transferred to the control, management and upkeep of U.S. Route 40 a.ka. The National Pike. The changes/straightening of Rt. 40 left numerous "pieces" which later were either re-named as township roads, or pieces which dead-end. Some pieces dead-end on both sides that used to be Rt. 40, with the middle piece re-absorbed into the current landholder's acreage.
This webpage documents the landowners on both sides of The National Pike, Rt. 40, from the 1936 map file titled "6200400270001.TIF".
The original files were over 27Megabytes. They have been reduced for this website but are still quite large.
1936 PennDot Plans
The first four maps are from a 1936 plan that covers the intersection with SR 519 (formerly LR 62075). Included is the Title Sheet/Index Map, General Notes and two plan view sheets. This plan starts about 2000 feet east of the intersection with SR 519 and continues westward to the Village of Pancake. The two plan view sheets cover the 2000 foot section.
