The work will run from the West End Bridge to Curry Hollow Road.

For the second time in a month, crews from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation District 11-0 will cause temporary lane closures and restrictions for pothole patching across a large part of Route 51.

When is PAT going to open the Wabash tunnel inbound for commuters? This has been closed since Halloween. Slow response and disinformation abound from PAT. Current propoganda from PAT is it is now out for bid, which is different than the 1) waiting for parts which we heard until December and then 2) repairs to be completed in about a week. It is ludicrous that a government authority lies about a public concern. PAT received millions in Federal dollars (our tax dollars) to open this up and now makes lame excuses regarding the disposition.
