Two public projects could affect traffic on different parts of Route 51 in Pittsburgh starting Monday.

Port Authority will close the Wabash Tunnel connecting Route 51 and the South Side from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily through Friday. Crews are replacing a ventilation fan.

Further south in Carrick, PennDOT will close the right-hand northbound lane of 51 nightly between Stewart Avenue and Ivyglen Street. The closure will happen from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. on weeknights through Feb. 28. Crews are working on a Verizon utility vault, PennDOT said.
