PITTSBURGH —

Traffic patterns on Route 28 switched again Wednesday.

Several months ago, crews configured what they call a “decision point” along the southbound lanes beyond the 31st Street Bridge.

The “decision point” will now move south with traffic moving side by side in two lanes for a longer distance before it must split.

Left-hand-lane traffic will still be able to access the Veterans Bridge, North Shore Expressway, Fort Duquesne Bridge and Route 65.

Right-hand-lane traffic will continue to be “exit only” traffic for anyone trying to get to East Ohio Street.

The new traffic configuration could cause heavy delays.

“It was so much easier when I was a kid.  I’ve been driving around all day today, and I am lost.  I don’t get it.  More changes are going to make it even more confusing,” driver Dave DeLallo said.

“It’s ridiculous.  I’m always jammed up.  Now, it’s going to be worse,” said driver Bill Meanor.
