GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Drivers may need a little bit more time to cross the Sorlie Memorial Bridge over the Red River because of a construction project that began Monday.

WDAZ-TV ( ) reports traffic is down to one lane and stoplights have been turned off. Temporary stop signals are being used to control traffic.

The project on the bridge that connects Grand Forks and East Grand Forks, Minnesota, is expected to last until mid-October. The bridge is 283 feet long and was built in 1929.

East Grand Forks crews will monitor traffic and may make some adjustments at a later time.
