Library T Service & Local Traffic Detoured in Bethel Park This Weekend

Port Authority will replace the rail crossing at Bethel Park’s West Library Station this weekend, detouring T service and impacting local auto traffic. Detours will be in effect from Friday, August 3 at 7 p.m. until about 4:30 a.m. on Monday, August 6.

During this time, Blue Line-Library service will terminate at Lytle, where riders may transfer to shuttle buses operating between Lytle and Library. A map of shuttle bus stops is posted below.

Riders should allow for extra time when traveling. Regular T service should be restored before the start of morning service on August 6.

Additionally, Route 88 (Library Road) will be closed near the Clifton Road intersection during this time. Auto traffic in both directions will be affected and motorists should follow posted detour signs, which will direct traffic via Clifton, McMurray and South Park roads.

The West Library Park and Ride lot remains closed until Monday, August 13, as Port Authority crews use the lot to prepare, store equipment and conduct cleanup work for the rail crossing project. Riders who normally drive to the station may seek alternate parking at Library, Lytle or South Hills Village.
