West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Continued congestion on Veterans Boulevard in West Fargo will make for traffic jams when school starts.

A West Fargo Public Works Spokesperson says the project was supposed to be complete before school starts on August 27th, but heavy rains pushed it back. Instead of all 4 lanes being open, one lane in each direction will be open as construction crews finish work.

Chris Brungardt - West Fargo Public Works: "Definitely worried about the congestion. There are two new schools, no one has ever been here. We don't know what the traffic patterns are going to be like. We will be having the signal lights up and going. They may be running pre-timed, so they may not be the most efficient but we'll still be able to move traffic and get the school buses in and out."

Brungard says despite the delays the project is a success.
