You are nearing the tunnel and city when you pass the Greentree Exit and go down a long grade. As you approach the tunnel, take the middle or left-hand lanes to enter.
  • As you leave the tunnel, take a second to admire our city's FRONT DOOR! Follow across the Fort Pitt Bridge, and take the sharp right exit ramp at the end of the bridge, (onto I-376 eastbound). CAUTION!!! This ramp and the following merge lanes can be DANGEROUS!!!
  • Stay in the right lane on 376 and take Oakland Exit 5 which becomes Forbes Avenue. At end of ramp, merge onto Forbes, which is one way.
  • Past the Oakland business district is the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning tower located at Bigelow Boulevard. Just beyond it is Bellefield Avenue where Forbes becomes a two-way street.
  • Continue in right lanes of Forbes Avenue past University of Pittsburgh tower. Forbes switches to two way traffic at Bellefield Avenue so stay in the right-hand lane following straight ahead on Forbes. (CAUTION!!! left-hand lanes head into oncoming traffic).
  • Pass Carnegie Museum and traffic light on Craig Street. Cross bridge. Pass next traffic light at Morewood.
