Modifications, including turning lane installation on Route 885 at the intersections with Second Avenue, Hot Metal Street, Greenfield Avenue, and Hazelwood Avenue, began last year. This year’s work on the $7.62 million project located in the City of Pittsburgh includes widening the I-376 bridge over Bates Street to lengthen the deceleration lane to the Glenwood off-ramp and installing traffic signals at the Oakland and Glenwood off-ramp intersections with Bates Street. I-376 restrictions will include ramp closures, a 15-day lane restriction, and several weekend lane closures. Motorists will also see closures and lane restrictions on Route 885 (Bates Street/Second Avenue). The overall project is expected to finish in September 2022.
