Commuters on Central Avenue can expect delays during peak periods as lane closures go into effect on Tuesday in northeast Minneapolis.

Central Avenue, also known as Hwy. 65, will be a single lane in each direction between 14th and 18th Avenues until June, the Minnesota Department of Transportation said.

The lane closures will allow the agency to finish work that was not completed last year when the highway was closed for several months as a new railroad bridge was built. This year MnDOT will finish building a retaining wall, install new sidewalks under the bridge and repair the road surface.

Look for the lane closures to kick in following Tuesday's morning commute.
