I-80/I-99 West Interchange

qguy:
PennDOT has received a grant for $35 mil toward construction of the topic interchange:

http://www.centredaily.com/news/local/article212578999.html

I started a new thread because the article says the grant is a federal INFRA grant for projects that can move to construction within 18 months. PennDOT will be building the local-access portion first. It finally looks like something may be happening relatively soon and we can follow it here.

BTW, I called this interchange the west interchange to differentiate it from the expressway-to-expressway I-80/I-99 East Interchange which PennDOT will eventually (perhaps sometime in our lifetimes??) build in the area south of Salona.

 Still don't understand why another thread was needed?

I don't see another thread on this. If this is a split from the general PA thread, this is fine.

I figured that with some of the complicating factors, like all the pyritic rock within the interchange ROW that has the potential for making it more involved than the usual interchange of its type (and has increased the cost and significantly delayed the project), the topic deserved its own thread. But kill it if you disagree. I won't be offended.

AMLNet49:
Isn’t this a big deal? Wouldn’t it more or less complete the original segment of I-99?
