Motorists will encounter a new traffic configuration on southbound Route 28 near the 31st Street Bridge beginning Wednesday, PennDOT says.

The configuration will take effect at 5 a.m. Wednesday, when traffic will split into two lanes with different destinations.

Vehicles in the left southbound lane will continue on southbound Route 28 to the North Shore. They will be able to access the ramps to southbound Interstate 579 Crosstown Boulevard and to southbound Interstate 279.

Vehicles in the right southbound lane will exit onto East Ohio Street.

In preparation for the new configuration, southbound Route 28 will be reduced to a single lane from 8 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday.

PennDOT warned that the “decision point” at the split might cause traffic congestion and urged drivers to allow others to merge.
