YORK — Maine Turnpike Authority officials say southbound travelers Sunday should expect delays around the York area.

Authorities say repair work on the York River Bridge will reduce traffic to two lanes.

They say delays are expected to be at their worst during the peak travel hours between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The bridge is expected to be back to three southbound lanes at some point next week.

The $4.5 million bridge rehabilitation project involves deck and pile jacket repairs and concrete repairs to the substructure. Work got under way last year and is expected to wrap up next month.
