That's according to the Michigan Department of Transportation, which worked with the city to repair damage to the roadway caused by broken storm water lines. 

The right and center lanes had to be closed in order to make the repairs. 

MDOT says it will have to come back at some point in the future and apply lining to the storm water pipes, which will require a lane closure.
