A submarine propeller moving through Suffolk tonight could cause traffic delays this evening and early Wednesday morning.

The load will measure more than 18 feet wide and 86 feet long, and will head eastbound on U.S. Route 58 through the city. It should enter the city from Southampton County between 11 p.m. and midnight, and will exit the city into Chesapeake.

The truck will have front and rear pilot cars.
