A $13.4 million project to replace the "T" leg of the elevated East Pittsburgh-McKeesport Boulevard-Tri-Boro Expressway intersection in East Pittsburgh and North Versailles is set to begin Monday. East Pittsburgh-McKeesport Boulevard will be closed at the intersection from 7 a.m. Monday through late October 2013, sending an estimated 5,200 vehicles per day on a detour.
Bridge inspections may cause lane closures on the Boulevard of the Allies in the vicinity of Second Avenue and Ross Street, Downtown, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. The closures also may occur on Second and Ross under the bridges.
