Finding Finleyville Airport

From Pittsburgh take Route 88 South to Finleyville.  As you enter the town of Finleyville, Route 88 will turn to the right at a tee intersection. One long block later it will fork to the left. At the fork, do not follow Route 88, but go straight ahead. About 3/4 of a mile from the fork, turn left onto Airport Road. If you cross the one lane bridge, you have missed the turn. About 1/2 mile from the turn, at the top of the hill, there is a sign for the airport. Turn left and proceed up the hill to the parking lot.

or

Take Route 51 to Large and the junction with Toll 43.  Take the first exit for Finleyville. At the bottom of the exit ramp turn right towards Finleyville. About 1/3 of a mile from the exit ramp, just after crossing the railroad tracks, take the left hand turn. As you enter Finleyville, Route 88 will join you from the right.  One long block later it will fork to the left. At the fork, do not follow Route 88, but go straight ahead. About 3/4 of a mile from the fork, turn left onto Airport Road. If you cross the one lane bridge, you have missed the turn. About 1/2 mile from the turn, at the top of the hill, there is a sign for the airport. Turn left and proceed up the hill to the parking lot.
