Oakland Traffic Delays

Major road, utility, and building construction projects are underway in the Oakland area. Plan to leave for your appointment much earlier than normal.

We suggest patients and visitors add 45 minutes to their typical travel time to reach:

  • UPMC Presbyterian
  • UPMC Montefiore
  • UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital
  • Falk Medical Building
  • Kaufmann Medical Building

UPMC continues to work closely with the city of Pittsburgh, the universities, local businesses and residents, and area utility companies to coordinate projects as much as possible.

New Wayfinding System

UPMC has a new wayfinding system to help visitors and patients better navigate to our buildings and parking garages. Look for the new signs to help you find your way around and park on our Oakland campus.
