Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission to hold Southern Beltway meeting

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission will hold a community meeting about the final phase of work related to its Southern Beltway project.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is holding a community meeting Tuesday to provide details about the final phase of construction related to its Southern Beltway project.

The final section of work will extend the highway, designated Toll 576, about 3 miles through Cecil and South Fayette. Construction is expected to cost $174.3 million and be completed by 2022, the commission said.

The work is part of the larger, $800 million Southern Beltway project, which extends 13 miles from the southern end of the Findlay Connector at Route 22 to an interchange with Interstate 79 near the Washington-Allegheny County line. The Southern Beltway, which runs between Route 22 and I-376 near Pittsburgh International Airport, opened in 2006.

The community meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh/Southpointe at 100 Corporate Drive in Cecil. For more information about the Southern Beltway project, go to

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
