Lansing to reduce Michigan Avenue from 5 lanes to 4, add bike paths

LANSING — Expect more delays along Michigan Avenue from Sparrow Hospital to East Lansing in the coming months as Lansing reconstructs the busy thoroughfare to accommodate pedestrians, drivers and cyclists.

The estimated $11.62 million project is expected to being in “late 2023 and continue through 2024,” the city said in a release. The project will reconfigure the five-lane road into a four-lane thoroughfare, adding dedicated bike lanes on both sides and eliminating an eastbound lane.

The bike lanes have long been advocated for by local bicycling advocates.

Phases of the project have yet to be finalized, the city said in the release.
