Argo AI plans test track expansion

Pittsburgh-based autonomous vehicle company Argo AI confirmed Thursday that it’s planning to expand its local test track, but remained secretive regarding details.

Nick Twork, senior communications counsel at Argo AI, declined to disclose the location of the test track or any details of the expansion, including size, cost or operational plans for the expansion.

He said construction will start soon.

A source familiar with the deal said the test track is located at 1001 Technology Drive in Mt. Pleasant, Westmoreland County, and a Google search of the site shows what appears to be a test track located there. It’s also the location of RIDC Westmoreland, which is where the old Sony plant was located.
