Pittsburgh Public Safety Prepares for Presidential Visit

PITTSBURGH, PA (January 27, 2022) – The Department of Public Safety is pleased to welcome President Joe Biden and members of his administration to Pittsburgh this Friday, January 28.  

During his brief stay in the city, President Biden will be visiting the research and development hub, Mill 19, in Hazelwood.  

Pittsburgh Police Commander Eric Holmes oversees dignitary protection for national and international leaders when they visit Pittsburgh. He says residents and visitors should expect temporary traffic disruptions as the President’s motorcade moves from Allegheny County Airport to Hazelwood.  

“Drivers should prepare for rolling traffic delays and detours, as well as restricted parking along 2nd Avenue between the Glenwood Bridge and Hazelwood Avenue for the planned event. It is advisable to pack a measure of patience and prepare ahead with an alternative route in mind to minimize travel hurdles,” said Holmes.  

Residents who live on or visit the following streets will also experience parking and travel interruptions: 

  • Blair Street 
  • Beehive Street 
  • Lytle Street 
  • Eliza Street 
  • Hazelwood Avenue 

'No Parking' signs will be posted 24 hours in advance of the visit and restrictions will be in place from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Friday, January 28.
