Share with others:
Track work in Beechview will detour Port Authority's Red Line this weekend.
On Saturday, from the start of service until about 9 p.m., the outbound Red Line will detour via Overbrook (along Blue Line routing) from South Hills Junction to Willow-Overbrook Junction. Bus shuttles will provide outbound-only service to stops from Station Square to Potomac and a rail shuttle will operate outbound from Potomac to Overbrook Junction. Inbound Red Line service will use the regular route.
At about 9 p.m. Saturday, the Red Line will be detoured in both directions until the end of service on Sunday, with detoured service, bus shuttles and rail shuttles serving both inbound and outbound stops. Regular routing is expected to resume by start of service on Labor Day.
Parts of Broadway Avenue in Beechview will be closed to vehicular traffic at various times during the rail work. Parking will be prohibited on the southbound side of Broadway between Neeld and Fallowfield avenues on Saturday, and on the northbound side of that section on Sunday.
All transit service will be on holiday schedules on Monday. About 30 bus routes will be detoured in Downtown Pittsburgh by the Labor Day parade.
