PennDOT Closes Parkway East Bathtub Due To Flooding

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — PennDOT has shut down the Bathtub section of the Parkway East in downtown Pittsburgh due to flooding.


The heavy rain has caused water to rise in the flood-prone area of the busy highway.



Officials with PennDOT says they’ve closed the westbound lanes between Grant Street and the Fort Pitt Bridge.


Traffic is now being detoured around the area.


PennDOT suggests this detour:


· From westbound I-376, traffic will take the Grant Street (Exit 71A) off-ramp
· Turn left onto Fort Pitt Boulevard
· Bear left onto the westbound I-376 ramp toward Fort Pitt Bridge/Airport
· End detour
