Northbound Route 28 Daylight Lane Restrictions Extended Next Week in Allegheny County

08/05/2022

​Pittsburgh, PA – PennDOT District 11 is announcing single-lane restrictions on northbound Route 28 between the RIDC Park (Exit 10) and the Russelton/Creighton (Exit 13) interchanges will begin Tuesday, August 9 weather permitting.

Long-term single-lane restrictions and shoulder closure will occur on northbound Route 28 from the RIDC Park (Exit 10) interchange to the Russelton/Creighton (Exit 13) interchange daily from 3 a.m. to 3 p.m. through late-November. Crews from Swank Construction Company will perform shoulder and lane patching and paving work.

The shoulders in both directions between RIDC Park (Exit 10) and the Russelton/Creighton (Exit 13) interchanges are intermittently restricted when necessary.

The work is part of the $27.68 million highway restoration project on Route 28 between Harmar/I-76/Route 910 (Exit 11) and Russelton/Creighton (Exit 13) interchanges. Construction will include milling and resurfacing, concrete pavement preservation, bridge rehabilitation and preservation, guide rail and drainage improvements, ITS upgrades, highway lighting, traffic signals, ADA curb ramps installation, signing and pavement marking, and other miscellaneous operations. During much of construction, long-term single-lane restrictions will occur, along with an 11-day single-lane closure in each direction near the northern limits of the project. Work is expected to conclude between the end of 2023 and early 2024.
