Motorists in Athens who frequently use the State Route 682 bridge over U.S. Route 33 should expect delays in the coming weeks.

According to a news release by the Ohio Department of Transportation, traffic will be reduced to one lane during construction.

Repairs include a new guard rail, bridge deck and approach slab.  

One-lane traffic will begin June 10 and is expected to last until November.
