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.
