PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - More weekend closures on the Parkway East coming this month.

PennDOT Assistants District 11 Executive Jason Zang tells John Shumway on KDKA Radio, crews will finish the work started on I-376 last year:

“We’ve got to do some bridge dams right there at the Squirrel Hill Tunnel, there’s no safe way to do it by keeping traffic open so we’re going to just have to just shut the whole road down,” said Zang.

The INBOUND closure will occur the weekend of June 14.

Two detours will be posted. Trucks will need to exit at Wilkinsburg, cars can exit there or at Edgewood/Swissvale.

“We’re actually going to restrict it down to a couple lanes starting at 7 p.m. Friday the 14 then at midnight we’re just going to have to shut it down.”



The road will be closed through 5 a.m. Monday morning.

An outbound closure is currently planned to begin June 28, weather pending.
