Parkway East To Reopen Sunday Morning

PITTSBURGH, PA (Dec. 13, 2015) - The City of Pittsburgh Department of Public Works, in conjunction with PennDOT and Mosites Heavy Construction, have announced that all lanes of I-376 East (Parkway East) will reopen at 10:00 a.m. today - Sunday, December 13, 2015.

Weather conditions and the week of additional preparation time allowed contractors to be more effective and efficient in performing necessary work. Crews wrapped and drilled 116 holes into the main arch of the Greenfield Bridge that will be loaded with charges at demolition.

Mosities Heavy Construction has also announced that no additional Parkway East closures or restrictions are anticipated prior to the upcoming five-day closure for demolition.

The next closure of I-376 East is expected to begin in the early morning hours of Sunday, Dec. 27, 2015. The contractor (Mosites) anticipates closing the Parkway East for up to five days for final demolition. The targeted demolition date of the Greenfield Bridge is Dec. 28, weather permitting.

All closures during the project are administered by Mosites, the contractor that is overseeing the Greenfield Bridge reconstruction project. The closures are necessary to allow Mosites to perform preparation work for the upcoming implosion of the Greenfield Bridge. Full details on the Greenfield Bridge closure and Reconstruction Project can be found here.

The City of Pittsburgh has made every attempt to minimize the impact of this closure on planned city events in Downtown, the North Shore and elsewhere. The magnitude and tight schedule for the Greenfield Bridge reconstruction project require weekend closures. The city and its partners have a seven week window in which two weekend closures are permitted to take place, not counting the Christmas to New Year’s closure in December 2015.
