PA Turnpike’s Review of Construction Projects to Continue

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports, “A reassessment of all Pennsylvania Turnpike improvement projects in the design and construction phases — including the proposed extension of the Mon-Fayette Expressway — will continue for several more weeks, the Turnpike chairman announced [on September 20] after a Turnpike Commission meeting. Turnpike Chairman Sean Logan said in a statement that the commission reviewed data about projects and asked for additional information from their engineering staff.” The project review was sparked by mounting debt due to annual turnpike payments to PennDOT for transit agencies.
