Pine Street Reopened

Infrastructure Improvements Remain a Top Priority for Mayor Andy Schor

(LANSING) – The City of Lansing Public Service Department announces that the Pine Street resurfacing project has been completed ahead of schedule.

“I am thrilled that an increase in road funding from the state and partnering on utility work enabled us to resurface Pine Street, as it’s a main entrance into our downtown,” said Mayor Andy Schor. “It’s important that the City continues to strategically repair our roads using the minimal funds available.”

Mayor Schor’s first executive budget, encompassing the city’s 2018-9 fiscal year, was unanimously approved by the Lansing City Council this week. The budget includes a strong commitment to infrastructure, including a plan for both road and sidewalk repair. For the first time in four years, the City of Lansing will allocate $400,000 from the General Fund for road repair.

“The repaving of Pine Street marks the start of what will be a busy season of street repair projects. We are excited to complete this project and look forward to presenting our list of 2018 projects to the public next week,” said Public Service Director Andy Kilpatrick.

In addition to the resurfacing of Pine Street, Kalamazoo Street was recently widened between Cedar Street and Larch Street to allow for the addition of a bike lane. The bike lane will extend from Larch Street to Washington Avenue and a pathway will connect Kalamazoo Street to the Lansing River Trail.

If you are interested in learning more about our roads and their funding, please join Mayor Andy Schor and Public Service Director Andy Kilpatrick at the final Neighborhood Road Map Tour of the year on June 7th at Foster Community Center at 6:00 P.M. Attendees will have an opportunity to provide input regarding how they would like their road dollars to be spent in the future.
