Nightly Single-Lane, Shoulder Closures Planned on Parkway North This Week

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 this 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 Tuesday, December 10, and continuing through Friday, December 13. Motorists should use caution and watch for changing traffic patterns.

The lane and shoulder closures are necessary to take down 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 Township.
