Mark my words.
Motorists should expect major delays on the Parkway East this weekend.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will announce tomorrow that it is closing all outbound lanes of the heavily traveled highway Friday through Sunday for continuing reconstruction between Bates Street and Edgewood-Swissvale.
At a press conference tomorrow, PennDOT will announce a suggested detour around the Parkway work.
I sure hope that detour involves readily available personal jet packs because THAT is the only way I can see anyone getting anywhere through Squirrel Hill and Oakland this weekend.
