Port Authority’s 7-Spring Garden Bus Route to be Detoured, Stops Temporarily Discontinued

The Department of Public Works announced today the 4100 block of Spring Garden Road in Reserve Township will close at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. The closure is expected to last at least two weeks. It is needed to temporarily repair a damaged retaining wall while a project to construct a new wall is being designed.

To accommodate for the closure, the Port Authority of Allegheny County announced that its 7‑Spring Garden bus route will be detoured inbound using Mt. Troy Road and Wicklines Lane and outbound using Wicklines Lane, Cowley Street, Ley Street, Rialto Street, Pittview Avenue, and Mt. Troy Road. Additionally, 24 stops on the route will be temporarily discontinued. Those stops include the following:
