LANSING, Mich. — The Lansing City Council voted to grant a modified version of a noise ordinance waiver for the Red Cedar Project, a major project on the Lansing/East Lansing border.

However, the waiver does not automatically allow the developer to have construction go on around the clock.

The waiver allows crews to work from 7 a.m. through 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

The same applies for holidays, unless the holiday falls on a Sunday when construction can go from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

If the developer determines they need to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, they will have to come back to the city council to get permission.

Executive Project Manager Christopher Stralkowski said they do want to be respectful of everybody and said the original waiver was just an insurance policy in case they fell behind on schedule.

One neighbor was not happy with the original waiver, which would have allowed work 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

"I have diagnosed chronic migraines. Loud noises, lack of sleep can really be heavy triggers. It would be really hard for not to be in my own living space due to noise, vibrations," Alison Duda, a full-time student said.

The modified waiver goes into effect Tuesday and lasts until Nov. 30.

After that date, the waiver is only good for Saturdays and holidays until the project is completed.

The Red Cedar Project is expected to be finished by the fall of 2020.
