• Businesses, homeowners preparing to make way for Mon-Fayette Expressway


    Some local businesses and homeowners are preparing for a major shift in the Duquesne-West Mifflin area, moving out in the near future.

    The moves are to make way for the Mon-Fayette Expressway.

    Ken Vegely’s Welding Business of more than 25 years will soon be re-locating to a new spot. He is one of more than 150 people who have already received bids from the Pennsylvania Turnpike.  

    The Turnpike is hoping to take over a series of properties and turn them into part of the 14-mile long Mon-Fayette Expressway.

    The toll road will connect with Interstate 376 near Monroeville.

    The highway will be constructed from Jefferson Hills through Duquesne starting in 2021.

    It’s expected to cost around $900 million.
