[ARCHIVED] Sidewalk Construction Begins Along Abbot Road Today

EAST LANSING, Mich. – As part of the City of East Lansing’s 2016 Sidewalk Maintenance Program, sidewalk construction begins today on the sidewalks adjacent to Abbot Road, from Albert Avenue to Burcham Drive. The work is expected to be completed by July 8.

Northbound and southbound traffic will be maintained throughout the duration of the project; however, there will be lane shifts in place to accommodate the work. There will also be intermittent side street, sidewalk and bike lane closures in place.

The crews will be working on the west side of Abbot Road first, from Fern Street south to Albert Avenue. Southbound traffic will be shifted to the center turn lane in this area. As such, turn movements from Abbot Road to Fern Street and Oakhill Avenue will be restricted in order to prevent traffic backups.

Motorists are asked to exercise caution when traveling through the area. Call the Department of Public Works at (517) 337-9459 with any questions.

Major Street Project on North Harrison Road
Community members are also reminded that a major street project will begin on North Harrison Road, between Saginaw Street and Lake Lansing Road, on Monday, June 20. The project is slated for completion by Aug. 19. In order to expedite the work and meet the completion date, the road will be closed to traffic for the duration of the project. Local traffic will be maintained to the extent possible; however, motorists are expected to seek alternate routes if they are able. The City and contractor will be working closely with those residents who have driveways off of Harrison Road. The signed detour will direct northbound Harrison Road traffic to take Saginaw Street east to Abbot Road and head north on Abbot Road to Lake Lansing Road. The detour will direct southbound Harrison Road traffic to take Lake Lansing Road east to Abbot Road and head south on Abbot Road to Saginaw Street.
