When PA 641 crosses the Tuscarora Mountain, it has multiple S-curves. At the county line, PA 641 makes a sharp loop towards the south.

In Spring Run, PA 641 intersects Pennsylvania Route 75. PA 641 continues east of PA 75 towards the south as Spring Run Road. In Fannett Township, PA 641 makes a 90 degree angle turn passing under Interstate 76 (Pennsylvania Turnpike). Then 380 feet (120 m) east of the I-76 underpass, PA 641 intersects its truck route and PA 641 continues east as Timmons Road. PA 641 Truck has an arch around the Pa Turnpike and then comes back to PA 641. In Lurgan Township, PA 641 crosses Blue and Kittatinny Mountains. PA 641 also becomes Forge Hill Road and has a short concurrency with Pennsylvania Route 997. East of PA 997, PA 641 continues towards the east as Newburg Road.

PA 641 Truck


PA Route 641 Truck
Location: Franklin County, Pennsylvania
Existed: 1984–present

Pennsylvania Route 641 Truck is an 8-mile (13 km) long truck route in rural Franklin County, Pennsylvania. While much longer in terms of distance, it allows heavy vehicles to bypass an especially winding stretch of mountain highway. The alternate route parallels a stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike as Anderson Road, then descends over the range as Cool Spring Road. While the truck route still features a relatively steep grade, it is less than that of its parent route and features significantly less traffic.
