The B28 is a medium-length B-road in north County Armagh.
The road starts on the A29 at Charlemont, to the south of Moy, and heads southeast along College Lands Road. After turning through 90 degrees to head northeastwards it settles down in an easterly direction.
After being crossed by the B131 at Drummannon the B29 continues east along Moy Road into Portadown. It crosses the A4 at a roundabout before heading into town along Garvaghy Road. This goes under the Belfast to Dublin railway line and the A3 in quick succession before ending soon afterwards at a gyratory on the A27 (pre-bypass A3).
Originally the B28 multiplexed along the A3 over the River Bann before heading southeast to Gilford and Lawrencetown along the valley of the river. The road ended shortly afterwards on the original route of the A26 at Lenaderg, to the north of Banbridge. This section was upgraded to Class I status in the mid-1920s. It became part of the A50, which it remains.
