Watch for slowdowns on 28th St. this week.

The Michigan Department of Transportation says there will be lane closures for watermain work today through 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 26, on eastbound 28th St. between Radcliff Ave. and Shaffer Ave.

It's a short stretch, but the lane closures could easily lead to increased travel times for many. Making it even harder to plan for, the work is weather dependent and could be affected by winter weather expected to arrive on Tuesday.

Consider the short closure an opening act for all of the orange barrels coming when the weather finally warms up for good.
