The outbound-eastbound Squirrel Hill Tunnel will be closed for construction on the weekend of April 5-8, PennDOT announced today.
A closure of the outbound tunnel planned for last weekend was canceled because of cold weather.
The tunnel will close from 11 p.m. April 5 and reopen by 6 a.m. April 8.
All outbound traffic will be required to merge into a single lane and exit at Squirrel Hill-Homestead. The posted detours follow Forward Avenue, Beechwood Boulevard, Forbes Avenue and South Braddock Avenue during the daytime, and Forward, Murray Avenue, Forbes and South Braddock after 8 p.m.
Two other weekend closures of the outbound tunnel tentatively are planned for the weekends of April 19 and 26.
No restrictions will be in place in either direction during the upcoming Easter weekend.
