From the Great Allegheny Passage website: This morning, Somerset County announced that it will close the Big Savage Tunnel for the winter on Friday, December 4. It seals up both tunnel entrances each winter to protect the lining of the tunnel from damage related to annual freeze-thaw cycles during the coldest months of the year. The tunnel will re-open no later than Friday, April 2, 2021. There is no recommended detour since the tunnel is surrounded by private property and local roads are narrow.
