Weekend traffic trouble spots

Written by Jon Schmitz on .

roadworkaheadThere’s another weekend of single-lane traffic on tap for inbound Route 28 — one lane open from the 40th Street Bridge to East Ohio Street from 8 p.m. today to 5 a.m. Monday.

Inspection of overhead bridges and signs continues on the Parkway West this weekend. Look for lane closures from 7:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday inbound between Parkway Center and Banksville Road and outbound between Green Tree and Carnegie. On Sunday during the same hours, watch for crews inbound between Carnegie and Green Tree.

A reminder that the ramp from northbound South Braddock Avenue to the inbound Parkway East is also closed this weekend.

Another reminder: Long-term single-lane traffic has begun on Interstate 79 in both directions at the U.S. 422 interchange in Butler County.

PennDOT will have the chain saws out starting Monday along the ramps at the Parkway Center interchange of the Parkway West. Tree trimming may cause lane closures or shoulder restrictions, and maybe a sore shoulder or two, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays through March 22.

Lane closures are possible on Thompson Run Road between Rodi Road and the Business Route 22 overpass from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. next Monday through Friday as crews take samples for a future slide repair project.

Burtner Road in Fawn was expected to reopen this afternoon after being closed since mid-January for replacement of a drainage pipe.
