  • Evergreen Avenue Utility Improvements and Albert Avenue Extension Project - Completed

  • East Glencairn Neighborhood Improvements Project – This project includes utility upgrades (water main replacement and combined sewer replacement) as well as road improvement work. Completion of this project is expected in mid July 2022.

    For additional information on this construction project, view DPW's latest Frequently Asked Questions & Project Schedule Map (PDF). Residents of the neighborhood are also encouraged to view the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy's flyer on how construction activity can impact drinking water (PDF). 

    *This project is now scheduled to be completed in mid July 2022 due to unexpected project delays, including reduced material availability, longer-than-usual lead times as a result of COVID-19 and weather impacts. All work originally planned will still be completed and, before work concludes in 2021, all curb and gutter, sidewalk and drives that have been removed will be replaced. All roads will also be paved to provide a hard surface over the winter.

  • 2021 Local Street Resurfacing Project – Completed

  • Oakhill Retaining Wall Construction Project - While the retaining wall replacement project has been postponed until spring 2022 due to a material shortage, AT&T and the Lansing Board of Water and Light will work on relocating their existing facilities within the project limits in fall 2021. View the letter that was sent to residents/property owners in October 2021 for additional information (PDF).
