FORT LEE - A three-month construction project is expected to create major backups for New Jersey drivers crossing the George Washington Bridge.

Work starts tomorrow on the Alexander Hamilton Bridge, the main thoroughfare for eastbound drivers crossing the George Washington Bridge and getting to I-95 in the Bronx.

Officials say traffic could back up for five miles into New Jersey. New Jersey drivers are advised to use the three Staten Island crossings. Motorists from the north are advised to use the Tappan Zee Bridge.

The project isn't expected to affect motorists heading west.

The work on the Alexander Hamilton involves steel reinforcement and deck replacement.
