SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The state Department of Transportation is warning motorists to expect delays on Interstate 25 near Santa Fe starting next week because of construction work.

A $4.9 million road rehabilitation project begins Monday along a five-mile stretch of the interstate between Canoncito and Glorieta.

Northbound traffic - beginning about 10 miles outside of Santa Fe - initially will be restricted to a single lane. Intermittent lane closures will shift later to southbound I-25.

The department said traffic delays are possible on the four-lane highway during the work week from 3 a.m. to 7 p.m. The construction is scheduled to be finished by the end of June, weather permitting.

The road project contractor is Fisher Sand and Gravel-New Mexico Inc. of Placitas.
