Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) -- Construction starts tomorrow on 32nd Avenue in Grand Forks from I-29 to Washington Street.

Speeds will be reduced, lane closures will be frequently change and an alternate route is recommended for over-sized loads. While construction can be a hassle for drivers, some businesses along the route are preparing for more customers.

Employees at the Hugo's on 32nd Avenue say they're stocking up on more products, hoping shoppers will find the back entrances more convenient.

Shane Anderson with Hugo's says, "We think that more people are going to say I don't want to go through that construction they're going to want to come here. People are accustomed to coming here. They like coming here so they're going to find a way to get here."

The project is set to wrap up in August.
