Southbound Route 19 to Westbound I-376 Parkway West Ramp Narrowing Begins Monday, 8/26, and Will Continue through Early November
PennDOT District 11 is announcing lane narrowing on the southbound Route 19 ramp to westbound I-376 (Parkway West) in the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, will begin today, Monday, August 26 weather permitting.
Currently, the ramp from southbound Route 19 to the outbound (westbound) I-376 Parkway West is closed through 4 p.m. this afternoon, Monday, August 26 as crews conduct work to lower the roadway to improve clearance. Once the roadway reopens, the ramp will be narrowed to an 11-foot wide lane through early November.
The work is part of the $14.55 million improvement project that also includes the replacement of the Shaler Street Bridge over Route 19/51 with Accelerated Bridge Construction techniques, concrete reconstruction work, median barrier replacement, lengthening of the Wabash Street deceleration ramp, sign structure replacements, and ramp reconstruction work.
Crews from Swank Construction Company, LLC will conduct the work. Please use caution if traveling in this area.
