PA Pike Continues Public Meetings on $1.6 Billion Mon-Fayette Project as Review of All Construction Projects Continues

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette staffs the latest public hearing on the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission’s $1.6 billion Mon-Fayette, leading with comments by a resident and engineer who, 30 years ago, “helped to design the first version of the highway.” The report adds, “Commission Chairman Sean Logan, a former mayor of Monroeville and state senator who strongly supports the expressway, has said that if the project doesn’t proceed this time, it probably is dead.” The report adds that the turnpike commission is reviewing “all construction projects to make sure they are needed and affordable.”
