After five years of reconfiguration and reconstruction, PA Route 28 reopens completely Monday.
The five-phase project, which started in 2009, rebuilt the road from Millvale to the North Side and cost $106,360,957, according to PennDOT spokesman Steve Cowan.
“This project has been decades in the making,” he said. “The major features are grade separated interchanges rather than traffic signals at the intersections of the 31st and 40th Street bridges.”
He said removing the traffic lights should ease congestion along the roadway.
