Construction on Route 28 is in full swing and beginning Friday night, one change will dramatically impact southbound traffic headed towards the city.
Traveling Interstate 79 through Butler County may take you a little longer, at least for the next several months. Construction on a new project kicked off Thursday morning.
PennDOT is preparing to make a major fix to a busy road in the North Hills. Large chunks of concrete are falling from the McKnight Road Bridge onto the road below.
There are new details on the construction on Route 28. A major hang up for the project has been St. Nicholas Church. On Thursday, demolition plans for the church were revealed, but there are also big changes that drivers will see starting on Friday.
Now that October is here, it’s going to be even more challenging to navigate your way through town. On the list of projects is Boulevard of the Allies.
Between the Pirates game and Skyblast Saturday night and the Great Race on Sunday, a lot of people will be traveling into the city this weekend. However, it could be difficult reaching your destination with some big construction projects.
It’s small in scope, but major in impact. We’re closing in on “Road Closed” signs going up in the Golden Triangle. Built in 1930, the Fancourt Bridge desperately needs to be replaced. And its closure on Thursday is expected to have quite an impact.
While it remained open this past weekend, reconstruction of the Squirrel Hill Tunnel has been causing drivers a lot of headaches over the past few weeks. Since PennDOT started its weekend closures of this tunnel a consistent question persists. Why are they taking out the false ceiling?
Drivers are getting a break this weekend – sort of. The “bathtub” section of the Parkway East downtown – also known as Parkway Central will be completely closed until noon Saturday.
Waiting until after the morning rush hour, crews closed the Crosstown Boulevard Ramp Monday, but the closure is catching drivers by surprise. Drivers coming off the Veterans Bridge must take the Sixth Avenue or Seventh Avenue exit downtown.
More than 13,000 drivers use the ramp from the Crosstown Expressway to the Boulevard of the Allies daily, but it will be out of commission for a few months. Drivers who use the ramp will need to detour as soon as they come off the Veterans Bridge onto Sixth or Seventh Avenue exits.
If you are out and about this weekend, you will likely see a lot of construction.
Commuters that use the Squirrel Hill Tunnels can forget about using the radio and cell phones at least through 2014 while construction is going on.
KDKA Radio’s Robert Mangino talks with PennDOT spokesperson Jim Struzzi about the effeciency of HOV lanes.
The doctors and nurses in the emergency room who first treated Fred Wikert, of McCandless, told him it looked like he was hit by a bus. Wikert, on a motorcycle, did a header after he slammed into an HOV lane safety gate.
