PennDOT is canceling plans to shut down the Squirrel Hill Tunnel over the weekend because bad weather is expected.

Work crews were scheduled to begin removing the tunnel's ceiling as part of a $49.5 million tunnel rehabilitation project.

Traffic, however, will still be reduced to a single lane in the tunnel beginning on Friday evening into Saturday morning, according to PennDOT.

The National Weather Service in Moon is forecasting a 50-percent chance of light snowfall beginning on Sunday afternoon in Allegheny County with little or no accumulation. The chance of snow is expected to increase to 90 percent on Sunday evening with accumulation possible, according to the forecast.
