This sentence is correct:

Sentence A.

Expect transportation delays in Havering High Street next week as construction teams complete the bridge widening project."

But is this sentence also correct? I changed the clause "as~." into a participial phrase in Sentence B by changing the verb "complete" into "completing".

Sentence B.

Expect transportation delays in Havering High Street next week as construction teams completing the bridge widening project.

Thank you. :)

No. The second clause

construction teams completing the bridge widening project

has no verb. You would need to add something more:

Expect transportation delays in Havering High Street next week as construction teams, completing the bridge widening project, will close one lane of traffic.

  • Thank you for the answer. But a sentence like "I finished it after getting help from him." is correct. And there is no verb in "after getting help from him". I changed the sentence in the question like this. Would you give me more explanation about it? – Smart Humanism Mar 4 '16 at 23:55
