There are more than 550 miles of sidewalk in the City of Lansing. To keep up with the annual deterioration rate of 11 miles, The Infrastructure and Environment Group (IEG) manages two sidewalk programs. 

Annual Sidewalk Repair Program

  • Repairs defects in the existing sidewalks 
  • 2014: Plan to implement city-wide repair project in coordination with the city forester for tree-related issues. Based on citizen complaint data, we find that our sidewalks are mostly in need of repairs due to tree root damage.

Major Street Sidewalk Gap Closure Program

  • Installing new sidewalk to close gaps between existing sidewalk
  • Since the start of the program 10.8 miles of sidewalk have been completed
  • 2014: 2 miles of sidewalk will be installed if funds are available.

In addition, a significant amount of the annual repair budget continues to be spent on updating sidewalk ramps and intersections to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.

Current Projects Planned for 2014

The Waverly Regional Recreational Network Connector (WRRNC) – Sidewalk to connect existing Moores River Drive pathway with the existing Waverly pathway south of Moores River Drive. Construction expected to begin in spring of 2014.
