October 7th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

The Cumberland Times News reports portions of the U.S. Route 219 Somerset to Meyersdale project are on track to open in 2018. The executive director of The Greater Cumberland Committee Brenda Smith said Thursday that the group watched the groundbreaking in August 2013 that no one said would ever happen and now the construction can finally get underway. The project will result in 11 miles of new, four-lane limited-access highway. In conjunction with The Greater Cumberland Committee’s monthly meeting, the North-South Appalachian Highway Coalition held its annual meeting at Garrett College on Thursday, where highway officials from Pennsylvania and Maryland provided updates on the project.
