Please keep in mind the Pennsylvania tradition of changing street names and route numbers (where else would 476 be the “Blue Route” and the “Northeast Extension”? ) In keeping with this proud tradition, we utilize both the *NAME* AND (Route Number) in our directions. Please take careful note of both!
