Traffic delays are expected at the Roundabout in Oak Bluffs this week, as the White Brothers-Lynch Corporation paving company sets down the final coats of asphalt on the central intersection. Work began Monday, and is expected to conclude sometime Thursday, said Richie Combra, highway superintendent.

The construction contract states that the traffic delays not exceed five minutes.

“It probably couldn’t hurt to go a different route,” Mr. Combra said.

Once repaving is complete, the asphalt will get new line striping.
