LOS ANGELES (AP) — Transportation officials say traffic is moving slowing into Los Angeles International Airport as they continue a weekend bridge demolition project that has shut down a major intersection just outside the airport.

LA County transportation spokesman Jose Ubaldo said Sunday that people trying to skirt around the intersection by taking small local streets appear to be causing some delays.

Crews are dismantling an old railway bridge over busy Century Boulevard to clear the area for a new light rail station. They are on schedule to finish by a 6 a.m. Monday deadline.

After they finish, traffic flow will be reduced by a lane in each direction for 16 months as the station is built.

That will make Century a tough drive to the airport, earning the project it's nickname, Century Crunch.
