Construction-related closures of the Liberty Tunnels will begin two hours earlier each night, PennDOT announced.
Both tunnels will close at 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, effective immediately. The earlier closing time will allow the contractor on the $18.8 million fourth phase of tunnel renovations to complete painting before the daily reopening of the tunnels at 6 a.m.
On nights of Penguins home games, the outbound tunnel will remain open until two hours after the games' end.
The earlier closing time will remain in end until the project is completed in December.
