Pavement repair work will disrupt traffic on E. 38th St. in the City of Erie on Wednesday.

All lanes will be closed from McClelland Ave. to the Bayfront Connector from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Local traffic will be allowed to access businesses in the area, but drivers are asked to avoid the area if possible or expect delays.

The repairs are needed due to Erie Water Works system maintenance, which was completed Tuesday.
