More traffic...

As if there isn't enough traffic between the neverending job on the Homestead Bridge, and the construction on the Parkway East, wait there's more!

Now you can expect monstrous delays on the Boulevard of the Allies and the Birmingham Bridge.

Can someone tell me, are there like 10 Penndots that don't really talk to each other except through The Force??? How does the average human being consider the following: Boulevard of the Allies is a way in and out of Oakland. The Birmingham Bridge is a way in and out of Oakland. The Bates Street ramp is a way in and out of Oakland. Let's close roads off to an already congested area of the city not just one way, BUT THREE. I don't give a fuck if its the weekend or evening or whatever, it is still an inconvenience for the folks that work and live there. Why didn't someone say, hey, lets do one thing at a time and be considerate of the folks that live there. I won't say why it wasn't thought of, but it has something to do with the conjuction of one's head and one's own asshole.

In one of the articles about this pinnacle of stupidity, Dan Cessna says, "This will be a challenging year for motorists as they travel through out the region." You think so Dan??? You are a fuckin genius man. Thanks for showing the rapid decline of both print press at the Post Gazette and the average IQ at Penndot.

It defies logic, and shows you that any fuckhead can work for Penndot. Don't worry if you are a moron and have the common sense of Lemming , as long as you know somebody and can do something stupid, you can work for Penndot.

Here is the Wikipedia entry for common sense. Penndot folks, please begin your research here.

I just wish that the assholes around the area would make more non arbitrary decisions as to what needs fixed. A prime example is the Bates St./2nd Avenue/Hot Metal Bridge interchange. It's already congested at almost all times of the day, and should only worsen as soon as AE moves into their new office in the Southside Works. It is absofuckinglutely ridiculous. They need to address traffic chokeholds before they fix potholes and rough pavement.

The traffic around this city is ridiculous! When traveling through other states, you never hit the delays that you hit here in Pittsburgh! I agree with you and Penndot needs to get their heads out of their asses.

I had the pleasure of driving through Oakland today and its already a mess. Thanks you Penndot, you are brilliant. The fuck that planned that should be forced to drive through that EVERYTIME they go anywhere, even if its to Florida, they should have to wrap around and waste their time.

I work in the South Side and live in the east. I already know, "I'm an idiot..", but they do pay me well.

What I don't understand is that PennDot is going to bottle-neck both the Birmingham and Hot Metal bridges...

Hot Metal: A critical turning lane is being blocked by equipment which causes the bridge to back up to Carson St.

Birmingham: Just drive there to see a 6 lane bridge brought to it’s knees by making it 2 lanes. And what’s even funnier is that there are like 10 people total working on it. I can see the construction from my window...

This city and it’s freaking INSANE construction is way out of hand! Christ, don’t get me started on 28.
