TAOS, New Mexico — Motorists traveling to Taos can expect traffic delays because of highway construction.

The Department of Transportation said repaving on state Route 68 starts Monday and is to be finished in mid-September.

The work will start north of the community of Pilar and go to near Rancho de Taos.

The department said traffic delays can be expected Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. because one lane will be closed through the work area.

Taos is a popular tourist destination, and Route 68 is the main highway from Espanola to Taos.

Travelers may be able to avoid the construction project by taking what's called the High Road to Taos, which is a route through the mountains between Santa Fe and Taos.
