State Awards $300K Toward Planned Montour Junction Complex

The long-planned athletic complex will border Moon, Robinson and Coraopolis.

The Pennsylvania Department of Natural Resources has awarded a $300,000 grant toward a long-planned multi-use athletic complex that will border Moon, Coraopolis and Robinson. 

The state grant, awarded this month through the Allegheny County Redevelopment Authority, will benefit the proposed 78-acre Montour Junction sports and athletic complex and multi-purpose fields. 

The money will fund landscaping, handicap accessibility and other site improvements at the facility and surrounding grounds, according to information from Pennsylvania DCNR. 

The sports center is designed to straddle the three communities, bordered by Route 51 and the Coraopolis Bridge. 

The site of the complex was owned by the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad before it was acquired by the Pittsburgh-based Sports Legacy Foundation. 

The project could cost an estimated $10 to $15 million to complete, according to reports. 

No opening or construction date for the park has been announced.

The property is heavily polluted, so a good chunk of the $10 to $15 million cost of the project is going toward remediation. But, let's keep it rolling!
