Red Line Detours July 23-24, 30-31; Aug. 6-7, 13-14.

Port Authority contractors will renovate the Fallowfield T Station platforms in Beechview over the next four weekends, affecting the operation of Red Line service.

The Red Line will be affected each Saturday and Sunday from start of service until end of service on July 23-24, July 30-31, August 6-7 and August 13-14. During this time, service to Red Line stops will be provided by a combination of detoured T service, local light rail shuttles and bus shuttles.

Red Line service will detour in both directions over the Overbrook line (where Blue Line T service operates), serving its normal stops Downtown, at Station Square and at South Hills Junction, then serving Boggs through Willow stations before continuing on its regular routing to South Hills Village. At Willow, riders can transfer to the local light rail shuttle that will operate in both directions between Overbrook Junction and Potomac.

Bus shuttles will offer inbound and outbound service to riders who use Red Line stops between Station Square and Potomac Station, with shuttle stops located close to T stops. At Station Square, riders may transfer to buses or the T to continue into Downtown Pittsburgh. At Potomac, riders may transfer to the local light rail shuttle for service to stops between Kelton and Overbrook Junction.

Regular operations will resume in time for each Monday morning's start of service.
