ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Many drivers near Buice Elementary in Odessa may have noticed the long lines of cars.

The district says they have started on construction to improve traffic flow in the area.

However during construction, they are asking drivers to avoid the area.

From 7 a.m. until 8 a.m. and from 2:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. as parents are lining up to drop off or pickup their kids.

It's during this time, the northbound lane of dawn and westbound lane of 87th Street get backed up.

Any drivers not picking up children are asked to avoid the area.

The construction work will continue this week and into next week.
