In addition to creating construction jobs, this project will have a large impact on Morgantown, West Virginia, Southwestern Pennsylvania and adjacent areas. It will allow for business growth, improved travel for local residents, travelers and tourists and the potential expansion of Morgantown and adjacent areas.
