The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission wants you to travel 80 miles out of your way to get around a bridge project in Beaver County that will close a portion of the highway from 9 p.m. Friday through 4 a.m. Monday. But motorists aren't required to use the authorized detour route, which will follow Interstates 79, 80 and 376 and take motorists as far north as Mercer County. “Certainly there are closer alternates,” said turnpike spokesman Carl DeFebo.

Two airports that underwent makeovers comparable to the $1.1 billion project that Allegheny County Airport Authority officials are considering saw traffic and their local economies grow after their new terminals opened. “For us, it was an example of, ‘If you build it, they will come,' ” said Rosemary Barnes, spokeswoman for Mineta San Jose (Calif.)

Allegheny County Airport Authority officials said Tuesday they plan to spend $1.1 billion on a project that would include building a new landside terminal next to Pittsburgh International Airport's existing airside terminal. The airside terminal would be renovated to provide 51 gates for airlines -- a dozen more than are being used today. Authority officials said the local tax dollars would not be used to pay for the project.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
