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.

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.
