If you are heading to any of the major events this weekend in our town, it’s probably less than encouraging to learn that PennDOT is closing two tunnels.
Two major tunnels around the area will be experiencing lane closures this weekend.
The outbound side of the Squirrel Hill Tunnels is closed again this weekend as PennDOT continues work on ongoing construction projects.
This weekend, drivers that use the Parkway East will have to take a detour around the Squirrel Hill tunnel.
The outbound side of the Squirrel Hill Tunnel will be closed from 11 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Monday.
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.
In a sign that warmer days are just around the corner, PennDOT announced some of its major spring road projects on Friday.
What most people took away from Gov. Tom Corbett’s budget address on Tuesday is that gas prices could go up even further to pay for our region’s transportation and road costs.
There’s a traffic alert for commuters who plan to use Fort Pitt Boulevard in Downtown Pittsburgh on Thursday.
It’s been 8-years in the making, and Route 19 through Wexford Flats is now nearly finished.
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.
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?
More road construction means another round of closures and more traffic headaches for drivers. In addition to another closure of the Squirrel Hill Tunnel, PennDOT has major plans for Route 28 – it’s a stretch that is already a mess on most days.
Construction projects are the bane of almost anyone’s driving experience, but there is good news you can think about the next time you’re stuck in traffic.
