The Mount Washington Transit Tunnel will be closed for rail maintenance until about 1 p.m., Port Authority announced.

During the closure, affected bus routes will be detoured inbound via Allentown and outbound via the Wabash Tunnel. Riders should allow for extra travel time due to the detour.

T service will use the tunnel but will single-track in the affected area, with all inbound service using the outbound platforms at South Hills Junction and Station Square. Outbound T service will be on its regular route. Delays of five to eight minutes may occur during the single-track operations.
