LA CROSSE, Wis. -

While it doesn't feel like spring yet, the road construction season is getting underway in our area.

Beginning on Monday, road work will begin on South Avenue in La Crosse.

Crews will create a detour and have to close some lanes.

Work is being done on underground utilities.

Northbound and westbound traffic will be detoured, southbound and eastbound traffic will be reduced to one lane between Green Bay Street and West Avenue.

The city says the construction should be wrapped up in a week.
