BWL to Begin Construction on W. Lenawee St. for Steam and Water Main Improvements
The Lansing Board of Water & Light will close W. Lenawee St. between Townsend St. and S. Capitol Ave. starting on Wednesday, May 15. This work is to replace aging steam and water facilities in the area.
During this time, Lenawee St. will be closed to through traffic. Beginning in July, S. Capitol Ave. will close at Lenawee St. Traffic will be detoured west on W. Kalamazoo St. and south on S. Pine St.
Drivers should be prepared to adjust based on temporary traffic control devices, and will experience short delays during peak travel times. Access to local businesses will be maintained. Sidewalks along the north side of Lenawee St. will be closed. Pedestrians can expect to be directed around the work zone.
