Winner for "On Budget" – Medium Project
Pennsylvania Department of Transportation
Route 830 Airport Access Project, Jefferson County, PA
At a cost of $25.5 million, the Route 830 Airport Access Project in Jefferson County, Pennsylvania demonstrates transportation efficiency while promoting economic and fiscal health. Built in two phases, it consists of a new Interstate 80 interchange and a new five-mile road to Dubois Regional Airport. Construction began on Phase I in July 2004, and the entire project was opened to the public on July 13, 2007.
DuBois Regional Airport Manager Robert Shaffer who represents the Clearfield-Jefferson Counties Regional Airport Authority said "This road will allow for us to spur development with our Air Commerce Park with benefits far beyond what we can see on the near horizon."
