Drivers up north can expect more traffic for the next 10 months due to a military construction project set to start next week.

The Department of Public Works announced a project to put in place a military communications line that will kick off next Wednesday.

The project is scheduled to last until October 7, although DPW Deputy Director Jesse Garcia told Newstalk K57’s Patti Arroyo Thursday morning that they’ll try to complete it earlier if possible.

The project will affect traffic along Routes 1, 3, and 9.

Much of the work will take place along the road from Yigo Pay-Less to Pott’s Junction.

The work is expected to affect traffic around the gates into Andersen Air Force Base as well.

DPW says these roads will experience one-lane road closures but not all at once

The department says it plans to work on the road in segments of up to 1,200 feet at a time.

Work is scheduled to take place from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
