Light rail, bus routes will be detoured this weekend

Port Authority of Allegheny County's light-rail system will be significantly detoured this weekend because of work that will close the Mt. Washington Transit Tunnel, the agency said.

Several bus routes also will be affected.

The tunnel will close to bus and light-rail vehicles starting at 9 p.m. Friday and remain closed through Sunday morning. The detours will end by noon Sunday and prior to the Pirates game at PNC Park.

All red and blue line light-rail service will be routed over the Allentown Line in both directions. Buses that normally use the tunnel will be detoured, which will cause delays.

Riders should allow for extra time to get to their destination.

For more information, call Port Authority at 412-442-2000.
