Three of the Allegheny County belt system routes connect with PA 148. The Orange Belt intersects with PA 148's southern terminus. The Yellow Belt runs along PA 148 for 4 miles from Walnut St. in downtown McKeesport to its northern terminus at US 30 in East McKeesport. The Green Belt terminates at the interchange with the McKeesport-Duquesne Bridge.


The route was first signed in 1928, from the current PA 48 alignment to US 30.[3] In the 1950s, the route changed alignment to its current route,[4] with minor fluctuations through the years.
