Starting Tuesday, Unalaskans should expect delays along Captains Bay Road.

Construction crews are surveying the heavily trafficked gravel road to prepare for paving and other improvements slated to unfold over the next four years.

That means drivers may experience delays as long as 10 minutes, between the intersection at Airport Beach Road and the business area at Offshore Systems, Inc.

City officials say the road work will last through next Thursday, Aug. 9.
