How many feet is owned by the state on either side of a state road in PA?

How far on either side of a Pennsylvania state road does the state own? I want to know at what point I would be infringing on private property (rural wooded/farmland area). Thank you.

It all depends, some roads are created by statute some local roads have been created by dedication. You would need to provide more details. It is likely something that can be determined by talking to the local municipality or looking at a land development plan filed in with the County.
