PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Department of Public Safety has released detailed restrictions to take effect Tuesday, March 19th for the trial of ex-East Pittsburgh police officer Michael Rosfeld. The jury was picked in Dauphin County. The trial will take place inside the Allegheny County Courthouse.

Public Safety officials say road restrictions around the perimeter of the Courthouse will take effect while court is in session and should not create problems for most of the morning rush hour. The detour for Grant Street traffic heading toward the U.S. Steel Building takes traffic right onto Fourth Avenue, left to Ross Street, right to Forbes Avenue, left to Sixth Avenue back to Grant Street.

Additionally, protest guidelines established during the Summer of 2018 will be in effect. The guidelines create ‘red zones’ where protests are prohibited. They include critical intersections, hospital entry and exit routes, Port Authority Busway, T Station, and rail line access points. Click here for the protest guidelines.  

Rosfeld is on trial for the shooting death of 17 year old Antwon Rose last June. The trial is expected to take seven days.
