The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation reopened the inbound (eastbound) Fort Pitt Tunnel Saturday after emergency repairs were made overnight Friday.
Authorities said through routine monitoring it was determined that a 10-x-30 foot section of the suspended ceiling needed to be removed due to deteriorated support brackets.
The tunnel closed Friday at 9 p.m. Up until that point, traffic in the tunnel was restricted to a single lane. However, PennDOT urged motorists to consider alternate routes until the tunnel reopened early Saturday morning.
