b,c,d,e are wrong on the basis that they changed the meaning of the sentence.

In the main sentence. construction of bridges is discussed but in the wrong choices. It discusses the construction of roads

A because of the city's persistent road construction, city officials have been claiming for months that the traffic will (Correct)

B with the city's road construction persisting, city officials claimed for months that the traffic (command subjunctive after traffic is unacceptable, and prepositional phrase is not acceptable to modify later clause)

C because the city persists with road construction, city officials claimed for months that the traffic would ( since its a fact that city officials and not a probability "would is unacceptable here)

D due to the city's persistent road construction, city officials have been claiming for months that the traffic (subjunctive error as B)

E due to the reality of the city's persistent road construction, city officials claimed for months that the traffic will ( changed meaning as action is taking place to this day)

you should have known that "because of" is preferred over "due to" most of the time in gmat. There are many official gmat questions in which "due to" is correct, you will know if you have heavy practices. On gmatclub, there are many articles about this issue, you can look up for it.

With + noun + verbing is wrong 95% the time.
C has wrong tense, so A is the answer.
