No Construction Date Yet for Planned Moon Walmart
The national big-box retailer plans a Moon Township location off University Boulevard.
Officials from Walmart have resubmitted a highway occupancy application to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation for its planned Moon Township store.
Moon Planning Director Adam McGurk said the Arkansas-based retailer resubmitted the application for the permit on Oct. 19.
PennDOT spokesman James Struzzi said "no timeline" is yet available for the store to receive the permit. Work cannot begin at the site until its highway occupancy permit is granted.
Walmart purchased property at the corner of Brodhead Road and University Boulevard in 2007, where it plans to build a 150,000-square foot store on the site of the former West Hills Shopping Center.
The store began the process of obtaining its PennDOT highway occupancy permit for the project in 2011.
