Buses will be detoured in Pittsburgh’s Downtown on Saturday for the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the Port Authority of Allegheny County announced Wednesday.

The parade runs from 10 a.m. to approximately 1 p.m.

Buses that operate on Boulevard of the Allies (Routes 56, 57, 58, and 67) will begin detouring at 7 a.m., and buses that operate in the Strip District (Routes 54, 86, 87, 88, and 91) will begin detouring at 7:30 a.m., the Port Authority said.

All other bus routes will begin detouring about 9 a.m. Most routes will resume regular service soon after the streets are re-opened after the parade.

A free rail shuttle between Steel Plaza and Penn Station on the East Busway will run from about 8 a.m. until streets are re-opened.

Additional light rail service will be available throughout Saturday, and shuttle buses will continue to operate between Grandview Avenue and Station Square.

A complete list of bus routes that will be detoured is available here.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
