Public Works Announces Nightly Lane & Shoulder Closures

PITTSBURGH – The Allegheny County Department of Public Works, in cooperation with PennDOT District 11, today announced that single-lane and shoulder closures will take place nightly next week on the northbound and southbound Parkway North (I-279). The restrictions will be in place between Exit 5 (Perrysville Avenue) and Exit 7 (West View) from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. beginning on Monday, July 15, and continuing through Friday, July 19. Motorists should use caution and watch for changing traffic patterns. 

The lane and shoulder closures are necessary to install a protective shielding system over I-279 as part of the County’s preservation project on the Levi Bird Duff Bridge, which carries Center Street over the Parkway North between Bellevue and Ross Twp.
