Not the end of Route 28 woes

Does anyone truly believe we will be giving thanks when the Route 28 project ends this November?

Take a look up the road from the Etna interchange toward the Highland Park Bridge. I see one Route 28 lane heading north.

Once this project is completed, traffic will be jammed from the bridge down to the Etna interchange. This is already happening almost every day.

Unfortunately for Route 28 motorists, the one-lane road syndrome also happens on the southbound side.

The build-up of traffic between RIDC Park and the Highland Park Bridge southbound is also a major issue.

This useless project put a Band-Aid on a very deep cut. You cannot possibly have a major roadway transitioning from two lanes down to one on any stretch. You see what happens when drivers head toward the tunnels in Pittsburgh. It’s the same problem when they see a two-lane highway turn into one.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
