PennDOT is advising motorists to exppect delays on the Parkway East outbound near the Squirrel Hill Tunnel as closures are expected to rack up massive traffic backups.
In additional to the tunnel closure, the Swissvale/Edgewood onramp for the Parkway East outbound will be shut down for work.
The outbound lanes of the tunnel closed at 10 p.m. Friday and will not reopen until 6 a.m. Monday as crews work to remove the tunnel ceiling. The work is part of a $49.5 rehabilitation project that is slated to finish in the summer of 2014.
