| Monday, Nov. 26, 2012

Ongoing concrete replacement and road work in the “bathtub” area of the Parkway East will close lanes on both the eastbound and westbound sides nightly starting Tuesday, PennDOT officials said.

Both westbound lanes of the Parkway will be closed between Grant Street and the Fort Pitt Bridge from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Tuesday through Thursday. Traffic should detour via the Grant Street exit and Fort Pitt Boulevard.

At the same time, eastbound traffic will be restricted to a single lane in the area beneath the Smithfield Street Bridge for drainage improvements. Drivers are advised to slow down and use caution.
