Travelers discovered quite a difference on West Main Road starting Tuesday.
A section of West Main Road, from the corner of Bristol Ferry Road past Patriots Park, now has a new traffic pattern. The previous four-lane roadway has been reduced to two lanes with a center turn lane, similar to East Main Road.
The lanes were removed on Tuesday and replaced by the new yellow lines on Wednesday.
Some drivers were a bit confused by the new patter, as expressed on Portsmouth Patch's Facebook page Tuesday.
Lisa Tavares Kuttner: It confused a lot of people. Some were driving in the middle (the new way) and some were driving side by side (the old way) right behind them.
