Construction Projects

Learn about upcoming and current construction in the City of East Lansing. Please note that the City of East Lansing does not have jurisdiction over all streets in East Lansing and some road construction projects are the responsibility of the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), Michigan State University or neighboring communities. 

In addition to the construction projects listed below, community members are encouraged to sign up for Nixle to learn about road closures related to traffic accidents and emergency infrastructure repairs (i.e. water main breaks).
