Numerous Port Authority bus routes will be impacted by the outbound West Carson Street closure that begins the evening of Friday, August 2.
Many of these routes will detour, but some will remain on regular route. All routes in this corridor will be subject to delays due to detours and/or altered traffic patterns.
Bus routes 21 Coraopolis, 22 McCoy, 24 West Park, 28X Airport Flyer and G2 West Busway-All Stops will have a temporary detour from 9 p.m. August 2 until the night’s end of service during initial set-up for the closure. Then, on the morning of Saturday, August 3, the long-term detours or delay advisories listed below go into effect.
These conditions will be in effect for approximately two years while PennDOT completes a major reconstruction of the corridor.
20 Kennedy, 21 Coraopolis, 22 McCoy, 24 West Park
These routes will not serve Downtown Pittsburgh during the long-term detour that begins August 3. Instead, they will use the McKees Rocks Bridge and Route 65 to and from Allegheny T Station on the North Shore. Riders may make the free transfer between bus and light rail to complete their trip to/from Downtown. View notice for detour for night of Friday, August 2 only. View long-term detour notice.
26 Chartiers, 27 Fairywood, 29 Robinson and 31 Bridgeville
These routes will not be detoured. However, inbound delays are possible, particularly during the a.m. peak, and significant delays are likely to occur outbound, especially during the early weeks of the closure when new traffic patterns are becoming established.
28X Airport Flyer and G2 West Busway-All Stops
These routes will detour outbound using the West End Circle, Steuben Street and Chartiers Avenue to Chartiers Ramp and the West Busway. All busway stations will be served during the detour. They will remain on regular route inbound except in cases of blocked traffic on West Carson, when they may detour via the West End (all normal stops will be served when this detour is used). Riders should expect delays in both directions. View notice for detour for night of Friday, August 2 only. View long-term detour notice.
G3 Moon Flyer and G31 Bridgeville Flyer
These routes will be detoured outbound using the Fort Pitt Tunnel and Parkway West, bypassing the West Busway. They will remain on regular route inbound except in cases of blocked traffic on West Carson, when they may detour via the West End (all normal stops will be served when this detour is used).
