Interstate 79 South
Interstate 79 South approaching Interstate 279. Interstate 279 provides the main route between Pittsburgh and Interstate 79. Follow Interstate 279 South to Exit 7A to North Shore destinations. (Photo taken 7/8/05)
Interstate 79 South approaching Exit 72 - Interstate 279 South - 1 mile. Interstate 279 is nearly 20 miles long and provides scenic vistas throughout, including in the downtown Pittsburgh area. (Photo taken 7/8/05)
Interstate 79 South approaching Exit 72 - Interstate 279 South - 1/2 mile. The left lane exits onto Interstate 279, while motorists in the center lane are given a choice to stay on Interstate 79 or take Interstate 279. (Photo taken 7/8/05)
Interstate 79 South at Exit 72 - Interstate 279 South - Pittsburgh. Instead of the normal junction signage, three pull-through panels are used, one for each lane. Rochester Road crosses the interstate prior to the split. (Photo taken 7/8/05)
Interstate 70 East and Interstate 79 South
Interstate 70 East and Interstate 79 South at Exit 19A - U.S. 19 South - Murtland Avenue. (Photo taken 3/15/03)

Interstate 70 East and Interstate 79 South at Exit 20 - PA 136 - Beau Street. (Photo taken 3/16/03)
Interstate 70 East approaching Exit 21 - Interstate 79 South - Morgantown - 1 1/2 miles. The sun angle on this March morning made getting quality pictures a nearly impossible task. (Photo taken 3/16/03)
Interstate 70 East and Interstate 79 South approaching their split in one mile. (Photo taken 3/16/03)
Interstate 79 South also heads towards Waynesburg, and this sign about 1/4 mile prior to the interchange informs motorists about that. (Photo taken 3/16/03)
Of course, when I got to the actual exit, I was in the process of passing a semi, and that plus the sun glare equaled a terrible picture. But this is where Exit 21 for Interstate 79 South is. (Photo taken 3/16/03)
