   Matthew Drive Extension Project


 Matthew Drive Extension Project

The Matthew Drive Extension Road Construction Project, which was recently completed, involved the construction of a 4-lane major roadway that runs from the intersection of Matthew Drive and New Salem Road to an intersection at Route 40 and Fan Hollow Road, a distance of 4,088 L.F. (0.774 mile).  The intersection of Route 40 and Fan Hollow Road is an access point for the Mon-Fayette Expressway, which is under construction by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.

While planning and preliminary engineering for the project took place for several years, actual construction on Matthew Drive Extension began in 2007.  The road was fully completed in 2008.

Funding for the project, which cost approximately $7.5 million, was provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, and the Fayette County Redevelopment Authority.  Tremendous support and advocacy for the project was also provided by local, state, and federal officials, including the Fayette County Commissioners and the South Union Township Supervisors.
