OTMA traffic advisory

 

 On Saturday July 11, a new portion of the PennDOT Bigelow Boulevard roadwork will begin, which will entail new lane closures and detours.  Here is the informational Traffic Advisory from Oakland Transit Management Association, which is the public contact for the project.

PennDOT District 11 is announcing a new traffic configuration will occur on Route 380 in the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, will begin on Saturday night, July 11 weather permitting.

Beginning at 8 p.m. on Saturday night, all traffic between North Craig Street and approximately Herron Avenue will be shifted into the eastbound lanes. A single-lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction of the eastbound lanes as crews conduct roadway reconstruction in the westbound lanes. This traffic configuration will be in place through late August. At that time, all traffic will be shifted into the newly constructed westbound lanes, so eastbound reconstruction can begin.

Additionally, on Saturday, July 11, a long-term single-lane closure will occur in both directions on the structure that carries Route 380 Baum Boulevard over the Neville Street ramp to the PAT busway in between Morewood Avenue and North Craig Street to continue structural steel work activities. This long-term restriction will be in effect through December.

This $12.24 million roadway reconstruction project of Route 380 (Baum Boulevard/Bigelow Boulevard), between Morewood Avenue and Herron Avenue, includes full depth reconstruction from the eastbound off-ramp of the Bloomfield Bridge to the Baum Avenue Bridge over the PAT Busway, reconstruction of the Baum Avenue bridge deck and milling and resurfacing of Baum Avenue from the bridge to Morewood Avenue. Additional work includes reconstruction of ADA curb cut ramps, traffic signal upgrades and pavement reconstruction at the Bloomfield Bridge. The overall project will conclude in August of 2016.

Motorists are advised to use caution, slow down and be prepared for changing traffic patterns when traveling through the area.  Work zone safety is everyone’s responsibility.
