Fifth Avenue lane closures continue

Lane closures that began this week on Fifth Avenue near Robinson Street will continue 9 a.m.-3 p.m. through late April, and PennDOT is advising drivers to seek alternate routes.

The lane closings are needed to allow contractors to place fill materials as part of the construction of a new wall above the new northbound ramp that connects Fifth Avenue to the Boulevard of the Allies.

Bus traffic headed into Oakland on Fifth Avenue will be shifted to the center lane.

According to PennDOT, some brief traffic stoppages will accompany the work and on-street parking in the work zone will be restricted.

The work is part of the $29 million project to replace the Boulevard of the Allies Bridge. Construction is expected to be completed later this year.
