At Milesburg, US 220 merges into Interstate 80. This double numbering lasts more than 30 kilometers, after which US 220 turns north and runs as a highway along the western branch of the Susquehanna River to Williamsport, a town of approximately 30,000 inhabitants. In Williamsport you cross the US 15. The road then forms a highway and is then double-numbered with Interstate 180. US 220 then turns off and forms a rural route north through a sparsely populated and hilly area. It then takes 100 kilometers before you come back to an important intersection, the US 6in Towanda, on the Susquehanna River. Along Towanda the US 220 is a short highway. The road then runs north along the Susquehanna River and is a motorway for the last few kilometers . The road then ends 100 meters over the border in Waverly, New York.
US 220 was created in 1926. The northern terminus has always been Waverly on the New York border. In 1973, the highway opened around Sayre, on the New York border.
