If you are heading north this weekend, unless you leave early you might run into a traffic snafu.

At 9pm Friday night, a major part of highway  in Lansing will be shut down.  All Northbound lanes of U.S. 127 will be closed ,   between i-496  and Lake Lansing Road .  Workers will close the section Friday night and will it will remain closed until 7am Monday morning.  MDOT hopes that closing that stretch of north bound highway for the entire weekend will make the job get done sooner.

If you had plans to travel that stretch of road, you might want to make sure you have a different route you can take.  This only affects the northbound section of U.S. 127 between 496 and Lake Lansing roads and again it is going to close Friday at 9pm and re-open Monday morning at 7am.
