Gov. Paul Patton, state and local officials, and residents of Graham gathered to celebrate the opening of the interchange, which some are calling the Gateway to Graham. This $3.9 million interchange opened to the public on Sept. 23.
Officials hope the interchange will aid in the growth of the future Muhlenberg Industrial Park and bring more jobs to the area. It will also provide easier access to two major industries, Ensign Bickford Aerospace & Defense, and Dyno Nobel.
