Route description

PA 268 southbound in East Franklin Township

PA 268 goes by many names along its route. The names along the route include Kittanning to Butler County Line Road, Kepples Corner Road, Main Street, Jamison Street, Argyle Street, and School Street.

The route starts just outside the borough of West Kittanning at an interchange with US 422. The route goes east into town before turning northwest towards the Armstrong/Butler County line, passing through a few small villages along the way.

The route continues northwest to an intersection with PA 68 outside the town of Chicora. The route then winds north through several boroughs, including Karns City, Petrolia, and Bruin. The route then heads northeast reentering Armstrong County.

The route heads back into Armstrong County, entering the city of Parker, going east for a very short distance before paralleling the Allegheny River for the rest of its route. While still in town, the route intersects with PA 368, where it terminates.

Further north on route, there is another intersection with PA 58 in Hovey Township, across the river from the borough of Foxburg. The route then heads northwest, crossing into Butler County again for a very short distance to the Butler/Venango County line.

The route continues for a very short distance, passing under I-80. The route then terminates in the borough of Emlenton, at an intersection with PA 38/208.


The route has, for the most part, stayed on the same roads for its entire existence, with the exception of the southern terminus. The original southern terminus was in the town of West Kittanning with US 422 when that route passed through the town.[2] When the Kittanning bypass was built, the terminus was moved to its current location.
