PennDOT District 1 PennDOT District 2 PennDOT District 3 PennDOT District 4 PennDOT District 5 PennDOT District PennDOT District 9 PennDOT District 10 PennDOT District 11 PennDOT District 12 The biggest landmark in District 6 is “the city of brotherly love” – Philadelphia. With over 1.5 million people choosing to make the city their home, Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania, and the fifth largest city in the U.S. The city is home to storied sports franchises like the Phillies (baseball), the Flyers (hockey) and the Eagles (football), as well as the Liberty Bell, which receives upward of 2 million visitors every year.

Two Philadelphia intersections made the top ten “most dangerous intersections in America,” according to a study conducted by State Farm Insurance. Red Lion Road and Roosevelt Boulevard is listed as the second most dangerous intersection in the nation, and right behind it at the third most dangerous intersection is Grant Avenue and Roosevelt Boulevard.

In 2011, District 6 had more car accidents reported than any other transportation district in Pennsylvania. The district saw a total of 34,641 total car crashes that resulted in 253 deaths and 28,151 injuries. The trucking statistics are slightly better – District 6 is the third deadliest district when it comes to fatal truck accidents. Between 2006 and 2010, the District 6 saw 111 fatal truck crashes.

Winter driving around Philadelphia is not as severe as other parts of Pennsylvania, but the southeast still sees a fair amount of snow. This coupled with the amount of cars on the road, especially in Philadelphia and the surrounding communities, makes District 6 more dangerous than any other district in Pennsylvania.

Roads in PennDOT District 6

Due to the heavily populated areas in and around Philadelphia, District 6 has many travel arteries running through it. The most widely used roads in the district include Interstates 76, 95 and 476, along with U.S. Routes 1, 30, 202, 322 and 422.

  • Interstate 76 has the most daily vehicle miles traveled (DVMT) of any road in Pennsylvania. The Interstate enters the state in District 11, moving east through District 12, District 9 and District 8 before reaching PennDot District 6 in Chester County.

  • Interstate 95 runs from Maine all the way down to Florida. In between, I-95 briefly passes through Pennsylvania via Bucks, Philadelphia and Delaware counties before crossing over the state line into Delaware.

  • Interstate 476 is one of the most traveled roads in District 6, connecting Philadelphia to outer suburbs and PennDOT District 5 to the north. Starting just south of Scranton in District 4 after splitting with I-81, I-476 proceeds into District 5 before entering District 6 in Montgomery County.

  • U.S. Route 1 enters Pennsylvania in Bucks County from New Jersey. It continues through Philadelphia, Delaware and Chester counties before reaching the Maryland border. Route 1 is only about 81 miles long but it is still an important road for the district.

  • Like U.S. Route 6 in the north of the state, U.S. Route 30 connects all the southern counties of Pennsylvania. U.S. 30 runs from Ohio into District 11, continuing east through District 12, District 9 and District 8 before reaching District 6. Route 30 leaves Pennsylvania in Philadelphia County, crossing the Ben Franklin Bridge into New Jersey.

  • U.S. Route 202 runs solely through District 6. It enters the district from New Jersey via Bucks County, heading southwest through Montgomery, Chester and Delaware counties.

  • U.S. Route 322 runs from Cleveland, Ohio all the way to Atlantic City, New Jersey. U.S. 322 reaches Pennsylvania in Crawford County in District 1, running east throughout the entire state.

  • U.S. Route 422 is broken into two sections in Pennsylvania. The eastern section of U.S. 422 connects Philadelphia to the cities of Reading and Harrisburg (both in District 8). The eastern section of Route 422 starts in District 8. The Route then runs east into District 5 before entering District 6. U.S. 422 ends in King of Prussia, a Philadelphia suburb.
