Thousands of sports fans will pack the North Shore Sunday for the Pirates final home game of the regular season and Steelers game against the Chicago Bears.
Sunday will be a Pittsburgh sports-a-holic kind of day.
It’s a big weekend on the North Shore with both the Pitt Panthers and Pirates playing at home on Saturday.
The Kenny Chesney concert was a big hit, but the trash left behind turned some heads, and now the Steelers and the parking lot owners are in a war of words over the mess.
Baseball fans, the wait is almost over. The Pittsburgh Pirates will begin the season at PNC Park at 1:35 p.m. Thursday. In all the excitement, the home opener will present some parking predicaments for everyday commuters.
It sure didn’t take people long to discover the North Shore Connector of the Port Authority T System.
KDKA-AM’s Larry and John talk to Alco Parking’s Merril Stabile about parking options on the North Shore.
While the “T” officially opens to the public on Sunday, a select got a ceremonial first ride today, including Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and the head of the Port Authority Steve Bland.
There has been a lot of talk about the opening of the North Shore Connector on March 25, but what has remained in the shadows is the impact it’s going to have on parking in the Golden Triangle.
It’s going to be a busy weekend in Pittsburgh. Pitt versus Notre Dame is one of the highlights of the year for Pitt fans and local Golden Dome alumni. The parking lots open at 7 a.m. Saturday.
A Pittsburgh tradition may be staring at extinction. Tailgating before Steelers and Pirates games has been significantly reduced over the past 10 years. Now, a new plan could further hasten the end of tailgating as we know it.
