Service on the Red Line of the Port Authority's Light Rail Transit system will be detoured this weekend because of track work in Beechview.
From 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, outbound Red Line service will use the Blue Line route from South Hills Junction to Willow-Overbrook Junction. Bus shuttles will operate along the Red Line from South Hills Junction to Potomac, and rail shuttles will operate from Potomac to Overbrook Junction. Inbound rail service will not be affected.
From 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday, inbound Red Line service will detour to the Blue Line routing at Overbrook Junction. Inbound rail shuttles will operate from Overbrook Junction to Potomac and bus shuttles will operate from Potomac to South Hills Junction. Outbound service will follow its regular routing.
Riders should allow for extra time when traveling during the detour, authority spokeswoman Heather Pharo said.
