AGENDA

IMPORTANT! For anyone driving to PDL Visit Day from the East -- The Squirrel Hill Tunnels (outbound) will be closed over weekend following Visit Day. This won't impact anyone heading to campus from the West. It will likely only be an issue for anyone heading east after leaving campus late on Friday or on the weekend. The eastbound ramp at Edgewood/Swissvale will also be closed, which could impact anyone hoping to travel toward Monroeville from Regent Square. This link includes some suggested detours in case it's helpful.

TRANSPORTATION


Karen has contracted Harper Transportation to make a morning pick up at the area hotels to provide transportation to the Gates / Hillman Center on May 10. Please let her know if you would like to take advantage of this service.

In the past, some have asked for ride-share options. Perhaps this will help when planning your PIT / CMU / PIT local transportation. http://bit.ly/FQhllQ

Additionally, most of the hotels have shuttle transportation to CMU available. This is NOT a direct shuttle to CMU and will make other stops in Oakland based on customer needs. If you do choose to use the hotel shuttle, please request that you be dropped off at the Gates / Hillman Center.
