Traffic near the site of Apple’s new “Spaceship” campus in Cupertino is expected to get a whole lot worse.

A section of Pruneridge Avenue between Wolfe Road and Tantau Avenue was scheduled to permanently close starting Monday.

That part of Pruneridge is needed to connect the new 176-acre Apple campus with buildings it already owns on the other side of the road.

The stretch is known to be a shortcut for drivers in the area.

The campus will bring more jobs and tax revenue to Cupertino. But, in the meantime, nearby businesses are worried the construction will drive away customers.

"Yeah, we're really worried, but we don't have any choice," Fantasia Coffee and Tea’s Jennifer Wang said. "It's already the decision."
