Route 28 Restrictions, Line Painting Occurring

Here's a look at all the work going on along Route 28.

It's no question that Route 28 is undergoing a lot of work.

The work is part of $3.5 million project that includes bridge deck, bearing and expansion dam replacements, structural steel painting, substructure concrete repairs, milling and resurfacing, barrier and drainage upgrades and other improvements on Route 28 at the Millvale interchange. Overall work will conclude in the fall.

In the meantime, see what sort of restrictions you could encounter:

Line painting
