Port Authority Construction Announcement: “RED 2” Potomac Station Square Station Bus Replacement Service in Effect to Accommodate Mount Washington Transit Tunnel Closure & Recent Disruptions to the Palm Garden (Saw Mill Run) Bridge

With the initiation of the temporary “RED 2″ Potomac Station – Station Square Station Bus Replacement Service” in lieu of rail service now disrupted due to the Palm Garden (Saw Mill Run) Bridge concern, and with the restoration after major inclement weather of the weeknight Mount Washington Transit Tunnel closures from the two year rehabilitation effort within, the replacement bus routing each weeknight after 8:00 PM must also be altered.

The Mount Washington Transit Tunnel will be closed weeknights starting at 8:00 PM, continuing until around 4:30 AM each following morning, or in the case of the bus replacement service, until the end of scheduled rail service each night that it replaces. The temporary stop on the South Busway Slip Ramp behind Station Square Station will be blocked each night at 8:00 PM; passengers and operators will need to utilize the transit shelter on East Carson Street on approach to the Smithfield Street Bridge instead.


Port Authority Construction Announcement: Beginning on February 7, Extended Closure Of The Palm Garden (Saw Mill Run) South Busway Bridge in Effect Until Bridge Repairs Are Completed

Following a cautionary closure of Port Authority’s Saw Mill Run “Palm Garden” Bridge during extreme weather conditions on Friday, February 4, 2022 and a subsequent inspection of the bridge over the weekend of February 5 & 6, 2022, determination was made to continue the bridge closure until repairs are instituted. This Detour Notice will be effective with the first service units on each bus and rail route effective Monday morning, February 7, 2022.

But for the addition of weekday routes and minor stop changes, the detour will be very similar to that already in practice, including routings for temporary bus and rail replacement services. Respective start of detour times are commensurate with scheduled start times for each route. The bridge is part of Port Authority’ South Busway, and carries seven bus routes as well as the Red Line – South Hills Village via Beechview rail route. During the bridge closure and repairs, scheduled Red Line – South Hills Village via Beechview cars will detour via the Port Authority’s Overbrook Line between Willow Station (Overbrook Junction) in both directions. Red Line service will be replaced by an Overbrook Junction – Potomac Station light rail replacement service through Castle Shannon, Mount Lebanon and Dormont, and a Potomac Station – Station Square Station bus replacement through Dormont and Beechview. Buses using the South Busway will be detoured via local streets to other busway ramps or normal street locations.
