  • Thanks for the updates. Yeah, planning work has already been done. I expect to see prep work taking place this summer at least.
  • Given that the city adds bike lanes whenever they can as official city policy, there is no way they'd take them away. Looking at the public service department's map, it still has the trail you're talking about as being planned for this year. See…
  • Some updates from the LSJ on two projects in the township: MERIDIAN TWP. – There's still ongoing progress on projects intended to transform downtown Okemos and Haslett Village Square despite the coronavirus pandemic. The Village of Okemos hit a…
  • Work on Forest is to be done between Stoneleigh on the west and Collins on the east. The Lansing city limits covers Forest to Harrison; beyond that it's East Lansing's problem. End of construction has been planned for September 1, but I'm not sure…
  • Saw a construction trailer out back behind the site of the Michigan Realtors project on Durant Park, yesterday. Looks like a demolition permit for 700 North Washington was filed on the 12th.
  • Just noticed they released a new rendering back in February. Aparently, they've finally designed the Medical Services Building (and Karmanos Cancer Center), which I guess is the attached building the foreground since they'd never really showed it i…
  • Raising it on a small bridge through the area would improve the natural environment. I suspect like most things it's the entities not wanting to pay for it.
  • I can't for the life of me understand why East Lansing, Lansing and Lansing Township have never considered raising this section of road higher above the flood plain. With climate change, it's only going to flood more often. In fact, EVERYTHING in …
  • Just discovered the project website has finally been updated with new renderings:
  • Check out the old JC Penny on the northwest corner of Washington and Kalamazoo back in what I assume is the 80's? It is now, of course, Cooley Law School's library. This is one of the very few reconstructions that ended up looking better tha…
  • Check this out. There was a plan back in '72 to build a route around downtown East Lansing to relieve congestion on Grand River. Looks like it would have butchered Valley Court Park. Though at the same time, now one can deny the pressure this wou…
  • The saga has ended: LANSING - The Michigan Strategic Fund board unanimously approved a brownfield proposal for the Red Cedar project Tuesday, bringing to an end a series of plan submissions and denials for the project, which broke ground last wint…
  • Happening in a kind of empty quarter of town, but... https://twitter.com/LansingPubServ/status/1262820828854587397
  • Update on the I-496 reconstruction: https://twitter.com/MDOT_LanJxn/status/1261668274166775809
  • Yeah, Reutter Park was built as a monumental park/square. Playgrounds in these kind of parks are tacky. I'm not even a fan of the one Durant Park, which is similiar. But at least that's one is in a residential neighborhood, mostly. That said, si…
  • Just to be clear, there was public outreach for how to redeveloped Reutter Park. From the LSJ in October: It's also an area in flux, with more than 300 new market-rate apartments planned for Reutter's immediate vicinity. City officials p…
  • Yes! LCC scraps plans for Capitol Avenue parking ramp after pandemic changes the circumstances They are citing COVID, but the truth is that there was significant public backlash to this. Anyway, they want to add two additional levels to the G…
