HOV Lanes

The High Occupancy Vehicle (HOVs) lanes on I-279 (Parkway North) and I-579 (Crosstown Boulevard) are open to all outbound traffic on Fridays and the weekends after 7 p.m. and remain open until 5 a.m. on Mondays. In addition, the two-passenger vehicle rule does not apply during weekend hours.

To alleviate congestion and bypass construction, motorists are encouraged to use the HOV lanes to exit the City of Pittsburgh following games and other events Downtown on weekends.
