BWL to Begin Repairs on S. Capitol Ave. for Steam & Water Main Improvements
The Lansing Board of Water & Light will close one parking and one travel lane on S. Capitol Ave. between W. Lenawee St. and W. Kalamazoo St. starting on Monday, June 10. In early July, this traffic zone will be expanded to include a full closure of S. Capitol Ave. The work is to replace deteriorating steam and water facilities in the area.
Access to local businesses will be maintained, however, sidewalks along the north side of W. Lenawee St. will be closed. Pedestrians can expect to be directed around the work zone.
Drivers should be prepared to adjust based on temporary traffic control devices, and will experience short delays during peak travel times.
