Another tiny scrap of G-20 information


We still don’t know anything about traffic restrictions or how bus service will be affected, but here’s one more little bit of information about the upcoming G-20 Summit:  the Secret Service has released summit perimeter information.  We knew that the area around the convention center would be closed; here are the details.

Beginning at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 23, and ending at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 25, vehicular traffic will be prohibited around the David L. Lawrence Convention Center from Liberty Avenue and Seventh Street north to the Allegheny River and east to about 13th Street. Traffic will be also restricted along Grant Street south to Seventh Avenue.

A smaller perimeter within that zone will be restricted to only summit delegates, staff and journalists who have received credentials in advance from the White House. Checkpoints to enter that zone will be placed at Liberty Avenue and Tenth Street, and Penn Avenue and Ninth Street.

For additional details, read the item from the Pittsburgh G-20 Partnership website. For summit-related transportation updates, the City has set up a website  where you can sign up for automatic e-mail alerts.

Next week the City will finally issue their traffic plan for G-20.
