Squirrel Hill Tunnel Closure This Weekend
When will the Sq. Hill tunnel be closed?
Friday, October 19, 2012 at 9:00 PM until Monday morning around 5:00 AM.
Why is the tunnel closing?
Poor planning and poor design. The Squirrel Hill tunnel has a squared off drop ceiling that is being removed to accommodate taller trucks and prevent future traffic delays caused by over-height vehicles. This will add almost 2 feet to the height of the tunnel.
How much is this costing?
About $50 million.
OMG what’s a yinzer to do?!
Don’t be a jagoff. Stay home.
