Overnight Transit Tunnel Closures Oct. 16 & 17

Port Authority’s light rail system and several bus routes will detour Wednesday night and Thursday night due to fan replacement work in the Mt. Washington Transit Tunnel.

The tunnel will close to transit vehicles from 8:30 p.m. until end of service each night. The tunnel is slated to be reopened in time for Thursday’s and Friday’s morning commute.

During the closure, all light rail service will be routed over the former Allentown Line in both directions. Due to the detour, Red Line and Blue Line cars will be unable to serve Station Square, so a rail shuttle will operate between Station Square and First Avenue Station to help riders connect to and from Station Square.

Buses that normally use the tunnel will also be detoured. Riders using detoured bus and light rail service should allow for extra travel time.

For additional information, view our Detour Notices for Wednesday night and Thursday night or call Customer Service at 412-442-2000 (TTY 412-231-7007).
