Ross and West View drivers heading south, east, or west should have few detours from PennDOT this weekend. However, the same cannot be said for the return trip home. Here's this week's orange cone alert:
Parkway East (I-376)
Squirrel Hill Tunnel Rehabilitation
Traffic in the inbound Squirrel Hill Tunnel on the Parkway East will be restricted to a single lane from 9 p.m. to 10 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights for tunnel rehabilitation work.
Grant Street Tunnel improvements
Inbound Parkway East will be closed between Grant Street (Exit 71A) and the Fort Pitt Bridge/I-279 ramps from 9 p.m. on Friday through approximately noon Saturday. Crews will be performing repairs in the tunnel that carries Grant Street over I-376. The ramp from Grant Street to westbound I-376 will also be closed. Traffic will be detoured using Fort Pitt Boulevard.
Parkway West/Fort Pitt Bridge
The far right lane on the outbound (lower deck) Fort Pitt Bridge approaching the West Carson Street off-ramp will be closed from 6 to 11 a.m. Sunday. The ramp itself will remain open. Crews will be inspecting the bridge.
I-579/Crosstown Boulevard/Veterans Bridge
The ramp from the inbound (northbound) Liberty Bridge to northbound I-579 (Crosstown Boulevard) will be closed to allow crews to continue wall rehabilitation from 8 p.m. on Friday through 6 a.m. on Monday.
