A head's up for drivers: a four month long construction project on one of the busier College Station streets is slated to begin in just a few days.

Texas A&M student, Bryan Gray, knows just how congested Harvey Road can be and it's about to get a lot worse.

"This road is already bad," said Gray. "I mean you have the mall down there, all the restaurants down toward Texas so I can't imagine the craziness that it's going to cause if you have all these lane closures particularly here."

Construction begins this week on a four-month long project to replace a deteriorating water line.

Construction that MugWalls owner, Trey Martin, isn't too thrilled about.

"It's always going to be an obstacle for customers towards getting in."

During construction the westbound outside lanes between Scarlet O'Hara Drive and Munson Avenue will be closed daily from 8:30 a.m.. to 4:30 p.m...

Despite the construction, Martin says he won't let that affect his business.

"We're going to be doing business the same way. 7 a.m.. to 1 a.m.., seven days a week." Martin recommends, "Since Harvey may be a little bit problematic just come in the back way through Munson."

Gray says, "I don't think it's going to change my opinion of coming here."

We're told construction should begin by the end of the week, weather permitting and if the project stays on schedule, it should be finished by May.
