PORT AUTHORITY MEDIA ADVISORY: RED LINE DETOURS IN BOTH DIRECTIONS AT POTOMAC AVENUE ROUND THE CLOCK FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19 – SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21
This weekend, Red Line T service will be detoured in both directions so that Port Authority can replace the light rail grade crossing at Potomac Avenue.
The detour and related street closure will begin at 7 p.m. Friday, September 19 and continue around-the-clock all weekend. Regular routing will resume in time for the morning commute on Monday, September 22.
All Red Line stops between Overbrook Junction and South Hills Junction will be affected. The following service will be provided during the detour:
• Red Line service will detour via the Blue Line’s routing between Willow Station-Overbrook Junction and South Hills Junction
• Rail shuttles will operate between Overbrook Junction and Dormont Junction, as well as between Shiras and South Hills Junction
• Bus shuttles will operate between Mt. Lebanon Station and Fallowfield. Due to street closures, buses will not be able to serve Potomac Station or Stevenson. Riders will need to go to West Liberty Avenue for service, where they may catch the bus shuttle or 41 Bower Hill route.
In many cases, riders may wish to first travel away from their intended direction in order to minimize transfers. For example:
• Riders traveling to Downtown/North Shore from Dormont Junction or points south should take an outbound rail shuttle to Overbrook Junction-Willow Station to transfer to any inbound T.
• Riders traveling to South Hills Village from the Beechview area should ride inbound to South Hills Junction, then transfer outbound.
Potomac Avenue will be closed at Broadway Avenue during the rail work, and traffic detour signs will be posted.
