Lane closures on S. Grand Ave. starting Friday evening

The Lansing Board of Water & Light will perform additional lane closures to the existing traffic control on S. Grand Ave. from E. Kalamazoo St. north to E. Michigan Ave. starting on the evening of Friday, Oct. 26 through Wednesday, Oct. 31. During this time, traffic on northbound S. Grand Ave. will be reduced to one lane. After this work is complete, the BWL expects to re-open all lanes to traffic.
