The Squirrel Hill Tunnel's outbound lanes will be closed the next two weekends, PennDOT said.

The Parkway East tunnels will close from 10 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday both weekends so crews can continue removing the ceiling. The work is part of a $49.5 million project to increase clearance inside the tunnel and make other repairs.

The suggested detours will vary depending on the time of day.

All outbound motorists will get off the Parkway East at the Squirrel Hill exit and turn left onto Forward Avenue. From 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, motorists will turn left onto Beechwood Boulevard, right onto Forbes Avenue and right onto South Braddock Avenue to get back to the highway. From 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily, motorists will turn left onto Murray, right onto Forbes and right onto South Braddock.
