Lane closures will bring delays for motorists on southbound US-23 this weekend.

The Michigan Department of Transportation advises there will be a continuous single lane closure on southbound US-23 between 5 Mile Road and M-14 for concrete patch work. The lane closure will start at 8pm Friday and continue through 5am Monday. In addition, there will be nighttime single lane closures on northbound US-23 in the same area.

M-DOT says traffic back-ups are anticipated with the closure and motorists are advised to plan extra time but also watch for slowdowns when traveling through the area this weekend. (JM)
