Mishawaka road construction detours drivers and business

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- On Monday, some sewer work shutdown a busy Mishawaka road.

It's not just an inconvenience to drivers. Business owners said they are hurting too.

Lincolnway West is closed for the next few weeks between Ironwood and Logan.

We checked out the construction detours along Lincolnway West, and a business owner actually flagged us down.

"The city didn't give anybody any notice about it.  The construction company sent us a letter Friday afternoon -- I got it -- that they're gonna close it Monday.  So, it really didn't give us any time to prepare," said Julie Allouch, the owner of Julie's Used Appliances.

Some businesses put up signs to let people know they are open.

Lincolnway is expected to re-open on May 21.
