A section of the inbound Parkway East is scheduled to close at 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2018 and remain closed until 10 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 30, 2018.

The westbound lanes of the Parkway East in Downtown Pittsburgh reopened late Saturday.

Westbound I-376 closed to traffic about Wednesday between the Boulevard of the Allies off-ramp and the Grant Street interchange to allow crews from Swank Construction Company of New Kensington to conduct bridge dam replacement work and roadway reconstruction. The work was scheduled to continue through 10 a.m. Sunday, however the work was completed 10 hours early and the roadway reopened to traffic.

Minor work, requiring overnight lane restrictions in this location, may occur in 2019, PennDOT said.

No work will occur on the Parkway East through Jan 5. However, work is scheduled to resume along other portions of the Parkway East late Monday, January 7.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
