I do not know why I am bringing this up, since we will never have an access road. If we ever get an access road, it really should be via a new exit off the MassPike onto Route 56 in Leicester which has plenty of room for exit ramps. From there you take Route 56 up through Leicester into the back of ORH.
Just look what the Milbury exit has done for property values there. It would be a boon to Leicester and alleviate much of the East-West traffic across the City of Worcester. The only way this could ever happen, however, is if we were to sell the airport to MassPort.
Adding an exit to the Pennsylvania Turnpike for the Laurel Highlands and Latrobe areas has been an idea kicked around for years, but now golf legend Arnold Palmer is speaking up on the issue.
The new exit would be where the current turnpike intersects with Route 981 in Mount Pleasant Township. From there, officials said it would be a straight, 20-minute shot to Latrobe. On Tuesday, Palmer prompted the county's Airport Authority to pass a resolution supporting the "Laurel Highlands Connector
We have a road situation between dangerous traveling along Route 30," said Palmer. With a recent surge in business development came increased traffic, and with increased traffic, came accidents, said Palmer. The Turnpike Commission said the project is being studied but is not on the front burner
