Travelers flying out of the Grand Forks International Airport today should arrive early as workers repair severed phone service.

Airport staff are processing passengers manually, making the check-in slower. Those flying out this afternoon could be delayed, said John Bernstrom of the city communications department.

"If everyone trickles in they'll handle it fine," he said.

Bernstrom said an excavation project cut a fiber optic line buried outside of airport property. Airport management expected work to be finished around 2 or 3 p.m.

The airport has departures scheduled for 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5:19 p.m., according to its website.
