have to route the whole way around :-)

Opening Of The New Boulevard Of The Allies Bridge - Return To Regular
Routings & New Temporary Devia
Effective: 11/25/2008 till 3/22/2009
Occurence: Daily

Effective With The First Service Units On Each Route On Tuesday, November
25, 2008

PennDOT and its contractor, Joseph B. Fay Company have announced that the
majority of the work related to the installation of the new Boulevard of the
Allies Bridge spanning Forbes Avenue in Oakland is complete, as well as
improvements to all approach ramps and Forbes Avenue below the bridge, and
that the bridge will open to regular traffic next week.

On Monday, November 24, 2008, Governor Ed Rendell, PennDOT, Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania, Allegheny County, City of Pittsburgh and other officials will
hold dedication ceremonies and an official ribbon cutting on the bridge at
approximately 2:00 PM Monday. After ceremonies are completed (no set time)
the bridge will open to normal motor vehicle traffic.

To avoid confusion for bus passengers, due to the late day opening, all
buses presently on detour will remain so for the duration of the service day
on Monday, November 24, 2008.

With the first service units on each route on Tuesday, November 25, 2008,
operators will depending on the route affected, return to their regular
routings (some of which have been out of service for over two decades), or
until language can be placed in the March 2009 operators pick, will assume
new routings via new "detours" included in this notice.

As of the morning of Tuesday, November 25, 2008, Detour Notices #08-004-0
and #08-017-0 will be discontinued.

Please use caution when returning to regular route and new deviations as new
traffic patterns will be established in numerous locations, (including as
part of the project a new bus-only left turn lane and signal from the
outbound bridge to Craft Avenue) and all motorists will require a few days
to adjust to new traffic patterns.
