States traversed: Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Kentucky
US Route 119 runs from DuBois, Pennsylvania, southerly and southwesterly to Pineville, in the southeastern corner of Kentucky. It runs through the Appalachian Mountains for its entire length. From US Route 119's northern end at US Route 219, it heads through areas of southwestern Pennsylvania that lie east of Pittsburgh, including municipalities like Punxsutawney, Indiana, and Uniontown. South of Uniontown, US Route 119 crosses into West Virginia, passing through Morgantown before turning westerly along US Route 33. US Route 119 eventually splits from US Route 33, heading south-southwesterly through Charleston and the rest of West Virginia. In southeast Kentucky, US Route 119 passes through Pikeville before ending at US Route 25E in Pineville.
My photo for US Route 119 comes from Morgantown, West Virginia. It faces southwest toward traffic heading northeasterly Spruce Street, informing them that the route turns easterly onto Willey Street. Drivers observing this sign are just leaving downtown Morgantown, where US Route 119 crosses US Route 19. This photo was taken on the way home from the Virginia trip in April 2021; I had just gotten done clinching Interstate 68, whose western end is in Morgantown. Back to the nationwide main page.
