The Combined Sewer Overflow roadwork begins today. This year's locations will include some roads in and near the Westside and some detours through the neighborhood. Beginning April, through October, Oakland Avenue will be closed between Walnut St. and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd (including the Walnut/Oakland intersection). Additionally, Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. will be closed between Oakland and Saginaw from June through September to southbound traffic only.
