Long Awaited I-99 Fully Opens Today

on November 24, 2008 8:55 AM

After years of delays, PennDOT will fully open Interstate-99 today.

As promised the entire stretch of roadway is opening in both directions before the Thanksgiving Holiday as barriers come down and road signs are uncovered at noon today.

The construction of Interstate 99 was delayed for nearly four years, while PennDOT spent $80-million dollars to cleanup large amounts of pyretic rock that was unearthed during the project.

Opening up the roadway will not only speed up the Altoona-State College commute but its expected to stimulate the area’s economy.
