Westbound I-376 Parkway East Bathtub Area Reopened


Pittsburgh, PA - PennDOT District 11 is announcing the "bathtub" area of westbound I-376 (Parkway East) in the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, has reopened to traffic.

The "bathtub" area of the Parkway East, located between the Grant Street exit and Fort Pitt Bridge, closed to traffic on Friday due to flooding. The roadway was reopened at approximately 8:15 p.m. along with the ramp from Grant Street to westbound I-376 and the ramp from the Boulevard of the Allies to westbound I-376.

PennDOT crews pumped the water and cleaned mud and debris from the area once the river receded prior to the roadway reopening.

Additionally, the ramp from southbound I-279 to eastbound I-376, commonly referred to as the Interstate Connector, has reopened to traffic.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
