Pittsburgh tunnel closures to create traffic havoc

The Associated Press


PITTSBURGH — People heading in and out of Pittsburgh this weekend may be in for some traffic headaches as officials are planning closures of two major tunnels during a busy few days of sporting events and other activities.

The Squirrel Hill Tunnel will be closed inbound and there will also be periodic closures of the Liberty Tunnels as crews perform maintenance work.

The closures come as the Penguins will be hosting the first game of their Stanley Cup semifinal series with the Boston Bruins at the Consol Energy Center. The Pirates will be home at PNC Park and country star Brad Paisley will be performing at Niagara Pavilion.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is encouraging drivers to find alternative routes.
