Attached you will find a letter supporting the Completion of the Mon Fayette Expressway to Monroeville from Senators Stefano, Brewster, Bartolotta, Ward and Costa and a number of House members from the region as well. You will also find resolutions from the many of the region’s municipalities and counties that we have gathered to date. More will be coming in and sent on as they are voted on at the municipal meetings. The Herald Standard has noted the passage of some of these in their coverage of municipal meetings.
This letter has been in the works and planned for a number of months to be sent in the immediate lead up to the upcoming SPC vote at the end of this month.
Discussions on this between Senators Stefano and Brewster began after the March 28 Senate Transportation Committee Hearing during which Secretary Richards was questioned on the tabling of the Northern Extension project.
This effort and coalition was led by Senator Stefano and Senator Brewster to demonstrate the bipartisan support this project has throughout the region.
It is one of the many steps Senator Stefano has taken since March to see this project to its completion including close coordination with the Fayette County Commissioners, meetings with SPC Chairman and Westmoreland County Commissioner Chuck Anderson and the other 2 Westmoreland County Commissioners, meetings with SPC staff and conversations with Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and other SPC members.
