PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The “bathtub” area of the Parkway East is scheduled to close this weekend.
Crews will be repaving from the Grant Street exit all the way down to the Fort Pitt Bridge. The closure is only for westbound traffic.
There is a detour route. Traffic will be funneled into one lane and forced off the parkway to the Grant Street exit. It will progress down Fort Pitt Boulevard to Stanwix Street, where drivers can get on the on-ramp to get back on the parkway.
The Grant Street on-ramp to the westbound Parkway East, the eastbound Parkway East off-ramp to Grant Street, the Boulevard of the Allies on-ramp to the westbound Parkway East and the Smithfield Street ramp to Grant will be closed because of this road work.
Contruction begins at 10 p.m. Friday and will continue until early Monday morning.
