Work on Squirrel Hill Tunnel Rehab Project to Begin Monday
Get ready for traffic! Lane closures will begin next week.
Lane closures on the westbound lanes of the Squirrel Hill Tunnels are right around the corner.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced today that closures will begin on Monday.
An inbound lane will close Mondays through Saturdays at 10 p.m. and reopen by 5 a.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 10 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Full weekend closures on the inbound lane will begin in July.
The $49 million project includes updating electrical systems, lighting system, control system, ventilation system, structural repairs to the walls and arched ceiling, installation of a water line and other improvements. Overall work is set to conclude in the summer of 2014.
