PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – In years past, the Veterans Day parade was every Nov. 11 no matter on what day it fell. Recently, it moved to Saturday to help boost attendance and give more people a chance to attend.

With the parade on Saturday this year, it could pose a traffic problem with Pitt hosting Notre Dame at Heinz Field. City of Pittsburgh Chief Operations Officer Guy Costa joined the “KDKA Morning News” to talk about what adjustments are being made to the parade route.

“The parade route is going to be a little different this year. It’s going to start on Liberty Avenue at Grand Street and proceed down Liberty Avenue into Point State Park. The parade starts between 10 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.,” Costa says.

Costa says he doesn’t foresee much of a traffic issue.

“The only problem motorists are going to have tomorrow is crossing over Liberty Avenue,” he says.

If motorists need to get to Heinz Field, they can use the Fort Duquesne Bridge or the 16th Street Bridge.

Roads will begin to close around 10 a.m. and should start opening up again around 11:30 a.m. or 11:45 a.m.

“It’s going to be a little inconvenient, but if you plan ahead, you should be okay tomorrow,” Costa says.
