(NECN: John Moroney) - The Sagamore Bridge is getting a face lift, and it's causing major tie ups for drivers headed to and from the Cape.

It's part of an $8.5 million project aimed at keeping the Sagamore and Bourne bridges operational. 

The work is forcing traffic to one lane, on and off the Cape. 

Some of the mid-week backups have been horrendous, something you typically see on the weekends during the early summer months.

It's a real problem for those people who commute from the Cape. 

NECN Reporter John Moroney spoke with commuters dealing with all of the traffic delays.
