A portion of Michigan Avenue in Howell will be closed for construction starting Monday morning.

Starting at 6am Monday, southbound Michigan Avenue between Mason Road and Grand River Avenue in downtown Howell will be closed for paving. The Michigan Department of Transportation is performing the work and the roadway is expected to re-open by 7pm Wednesday. A detour will be posted when the roadway is closed that directs motorists westbound on Grand River, southbound on Highlander Way/McPherson Park Drive, and then eastbound on Grand River Avenue.

The northbound side of Michigan Avenue was completed last week. (JM)
