RALEIGH, N.C. -- Wake County school officials are preparing to make changes to bus routes and school schedules as they cope with the three-year effort to repair the Raleigh Beltline.            

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that the Beltline repair project will affect thousands of students and their families across the county.            

There are 223 bus routes, about 20 percent of the county's buses, that travel either on the parts of the Beltline that will be rebuilt or on other roads that will get more traffic as motorists look for alternate routes.            

Chief business officer David Neter said workers will also be affected, noting that the majority of the 17,572 employees work at schools and that there's not a lot that can be done to change their schedules
