LANSING, Mich. — Lansing’s Shiawassee Street at Adado Riverfront Park and Capitol Avenue at the Michigan State Capitol will be closed from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday.

The Lansing Public Service Department announced in a Thursday news release that the roads will be closed for the Dribbling 4 Justice and Unity event.
