One-Way to Two-Way Street Conversion

The City of Lansing is planning to convert the remaining one-way streets downtown to two-way tentatively beginning in the late Summer 2020. This conversion has been discussed for almost 20 years since Shiawassee, Ionia and Washtenaw Streets were converted from one-way to two-way operation. This conversion is being done primarily to make it easier to get around downtown, seeing that it will make travel routes more direct and will reduce the amount of confusion for visitors. 

There are many anticipated benefits of this change with just a few including a decrease in vehicle/pedestrian conflicts, an increase of livability in the residential areas, and a significant boost in property values.
