About 14,200 drivers a day will be detoured through Downtown and the North Shore when the ramp from southbound Route 65 to northbound Interstate 279 and Route 28 closes Monday for construction, PennDOT says.
All traffic will be detoured across the Fort Duquesne Bridge and should take the Fort Duquesne Boulevard ramp, turn left at Ninth Street to cross the Rachel Carson Bridge, then turn right onto East General Robinson Street. Drivers continuing to northbound I-279 should take the East Ohio Street ramp to Madison Avenue, then take the I-279 ramp from there. Drivers going to Route 28 can follow signs from East General Robinson Street. Police will be posted at key intersections to assist traffic movement.
