TRAFFIC ALERT: Crews start work on Michigan Avenue

Crews started resurfacing Michigan Avenue near Sparrow Hospital in Lansing Monday morning.

The work zone stretches from Holmes Street to Charles Street just west of US-127.

Right now the lanes next to the curb are closed in each direction.

The interior lanes and left-turn lane should be closed next week.

The schedule depends on the weather.

This project is a short-term fix, meant to keep Michigan Avenue drivable until it can be rebuilt in the next few years.
