The Turnpike has halted design and engineering work on the last leg of the Mon-Fayette Expressway in response to concerns raised this week by the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission questioning the value of the $2.2 billion project. County Executive Rich Fitzgerald favors canceling the construction, transferring the funds to other projects that better redevelop the Mon Valley. However Fayette County Commissioner Vincent Vicites believes the Turnpike can’t just shift funds to another regional project and wants the construction completed so the Expressway can be fully utilized and the region won't lose the money.
