BWL to Close N Capitol Ave. for Steam Vault Construction
The Lansing Board of Water & Light will close N. Capitol Ave. from W. Saginaw St. south to W. Lapeer St. starting Monday, May 13 through Friday, June 14. The work is to replace an aging steam main that crosses Capitol Ave.
Throughout construction, N. Capitol Ave. will be closed to through traffic. Traffic will be detoured east on W. Saginaw St. and south on N. Cedar St.
Drivers should be prepared to adjust based on temporary traffic control devices, and will experience short delays during peak travel times. Access will be maintained to local businesses. Sidewalks along Capitol Ave. will remain open, however, pedestrians can expect to be directed around the work zone.
