Drone video of US 219 before it opens to traffic Wednesday afternoon


    It took five years of work, millions of dollars and a tight schedule, but finally, on Wednesday, the new US 219 highway between Meyersdale and Somerset will open to drivers, re-routing them the windy and dark Old 219.

    The new long-awaited 11 mile four-lane expressway cuts travel time between the two towns by 15-20 minutes and makes travel easier for large tractor-trailers.

    After a ribbon-cutting Wednesday morning, the road will officially open for drivers.
