Traffic Closures and Restrictions for Allegheny Circle Phase 2

PITTSBURGH, PA  (October 21, 2021) The City of Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) advises that a section of Ridge Avenue in the City’s North Shore neighborhood will be closed the week of October 25, 2021. It is anticipated that the closures will be in place until early December 2021. This will be in addition to the current closures at East Ohio Street and South Federal Street, which are scheduled to remain in place until late November.

The detour route for Ridge Avenue is as follows:

  • Ridge Avenue: Detour using Arch Street and West North Avenue and North Federal Street.
  • All intersections around Allegheny Commons will remain in STOP conditions for all traffic movements. There will be temporary ADA ramps along with ADA compliant pedestrian detours posted around the work area.

Although there will be traffic restrictions, traffic will be maintained on Allegheny Circle while work is completed. Please be aware of flaggers and adhere to changing traffic pattern for motorists, bicycles, and pedestrians.

Hours of construction will generally occur during the week, Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. One lane of traffic along North, South, East, and West Commons will be maintained throughout the construction project. Advance notice will be given prior to detours being put in place or lifted.

The purpose of the project is the conversion of Allegheny Commons (North, South, East and West Commons Streets) from one way to bidirectional traffic with bicycle lanes.

Thank you for your cooperation during this time. We hope there will be only minor inconveniences. If you have any questions or require further information regarding this project, you may contact the City’s Response Center by calling 311 or 412-255-2621.
