Long-Term Detour: 59, 71, P7, P71

Four Port Authority bus routes will detour in Swissvale starting Friday, February 1 due to a change in the posted weight limit on the Kenmawr Avenue Bridge.

The Kenmawr Avenue Bridge, which is co-owned by Swissvale Borough and Norfolk Southern, is used by routes 59 Mon Valley, 71 Edgewood Town Center, P7 McKeesport Flyer and P71 Swisshelm Park-Rankin Flyer. The bridge’s weight limit was changed this week to 6 tons. Port Authority buses weigh between 15 and 22 tons.

These routing changes are a long-term detour and will be in effect until further notice. Due to the extensive nature of the detour, riders should expect delays on these routes.

Complete details are posted below or riders may call Port Authority Customer Service for more information: 412-442-2000 or for TTY, 412-231-7007.

Effective 2/1/2013 Until Further Notice:
