Business as Usual for Pittsburgh Airport, Regional Transportation


Fontaine, Tom, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


Federal authorities say Osama bin Laden's death hasn't resulted in specific terror threats against the United States that will alter security measures already in place at airports and other transportation facilities.

"We remain at a heightened state of vigilance, but the Department of Homeland Security does not intend to issue a (terror) alert at this time," Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said in a statement.

Local transportation officials say their agencies are already at a heightened state of alert.

Pittsburgh International Airport spokeswoman JoAnn Jenny said local travelers should not notice any changes.

"There has been heightened awareness and security at airports for some time. People may notice an increased security presence, but it shouldn't lead to increased wait times or anything noticeable," Jenny said. She attributed long lines that reached the entrance of the airport`s main security checkpoint level to typically heavy Monday morning traffic.

Likewise, PennDOT said local motorists' commutes shouldn`t be affected.

"We are constantly on a high state of alert regarding the tunnels and we have received no indication that that will change," said PennDOT District 11 spokesman Jim Struzzi.
