The ramp from Forward Avenue to the outbound Parkway East in Squirrel Hill will close for one month starting today, PennDOT announced this morning.

The ramp, which connects traffic to the outbound parkway via Beechwood Boulevard, was scheduled to close at noon and remain closed until Aug. 31 to allow crews to replace pedestals and bearings on the parkway bridge over Forward Avenue.

The posted detour is to use the ramp to the inbound parkway, exit at Glenwood/Route 885 (Exit 73A), turn right at Bates Street and left to the ramp to the outbound parkway.
