Several Port Authority afternoon bus trips are likely to be delayed starting today because of the northbound closure of Lebanon Road-Route 885, the agency announced.
A bridge replacement project has closed Lebanon Road to northbound traffic at Lebanon Church Road. That will cause delays for buses entering and leaving the authority's West Mifflin Garage.
Affected routes are the 51, 51L, 52L, 53, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, all 61-series routes, 64, 65, 81, 83, P3, P7, P76 and all Y routes.
The road closure is scheduled to continue through mid-May, according to PennDOT.
Also tonight, eight bus routes will face a small detour in Downtown Pittsburgh starting at 7:30 p.m. because of a closure of Sixth Avenue for work on the roof of Wood Street Station. Affected are 61- and 71-series routes. The Sixth Avenue entrance to Wood Street Station will be closed but T riders can access the station from Wood Street.
The same closures will be in effect on Mondays throughout May.
