LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

An unexpected underground sewer pipe repair has caused a temporary lane closure on Copeland Avenue, according to La Crosse police.

Southbound traffic near the 200 block of Copeland Avenue viaduct is being directed into the right lane.

The City of La Crosse traffic engineer said construction should be completed by Monday, January 27. La Crosse police said it’s expected that traffic will have to be re-directed into the left lane mid-week.

You should expect delays during peak traffic times due to the lane closure.
