Construction began Tuesday on one busy road in the east--causing some lengthy traffic delays.
It's taking place around the intersection of Memorial Drive and West 5th street in Greenville.
Department of Transportation workers are extending a traffic island in the north bound and south bound lanes of Memorial Drive to allow more vehicles into the turning lane when completed.
Some traffic was backed up nearly to the Pitt Greenville Airport at one point.
Officials hope to have work done in the next 2 to 3 days.
