Construction and utility projects around Fresno causing traffic tie-ups

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- If it seems there is a lot of construction going on around Fresno right now, you're right.

With all of the rain we received this spring, drivers have had to deal with lots of potholes. But constant heavy truck traffic will also ruin the roads.

So the city has repair projects in just about every quadrant of Fresno. But it's not just city construction that is causing the traffic tie-ups.

Several utility companies are also doing work.

In addition to those projects, Fresno's water division is making upgrades citywide.

City Public Works Director Scott Mozier says he expects the projects to last for another couple of months.
