The fourth and largest phase of the Route 28 construction project in Pittsburgh and Millvale will begin Monday, resulting in significant changes to traffic patterns.

Starting Monday night and continuing through Sept. 6, southbound Route 28 will be reduced to one lane from the 40th Street Bridge to the Chestnut Street overpass from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. weeknights.

At 8 p.m. Sept. 6, long-term restrictions will begin in the same area that will shift two southbound lanes closer to the railroad tracks during peak hours and maintain one northbound lane. That traffic pattern will be in place around-the-clock through fall 2014.

The new construction phase includes widening and reconstructing the Route 28 interchange with the 31st Street Bridge, replacing part of the bridge, installing a new median barrier and traffic signals, and other improvements between Chestnut Street and the 40th Street Bridge.
