BWL to Close S. Capitol Ave. for Steam
and Water Main Improvements
The Lansing Board of Water & Light will close S. Capitol Ave. between W. Kalamazoo St. and W. Hillsdale St. starting on Monday, July 8. Traffic will be detoured west on W. Kalamazoo St., south on S. Pine St. and east on W. Malcolm X St. The work is to replace deteriorating steam and water facilities in the area, and is expected to be finished by Labor Day.
Sidewalks along the north side of W. Lenawee St. will be closed, along with the crosswalks at S. Capitol Ave. Pedestrians can expect to be directed around the work zone.
Access to local area residents and businesses adjacent to the work areas will be maintained during the project. Drivers are advised to expect delays and to seek alternate routes.
