[ARCHIVED] Abbot Road Construction Update, Full Road Closure to Begin Next Monday

EAST LANSING, Mich. – As part of the ongoing major street project on Abbot Road, there will be a full road closure between Saginaw Street and Whitehills Drive beginning next Monday, July 20. The closure will include the Abbot-Whitehills intersection for the beginning part of the week to complete necessary repairs.

The full road closure is estimated to be in place for approximately two weeks during both the day and night. To accommodate traffic during this time, a posted detour will be in place. The detour from the north end of the project limits will be east on Saginaw Street to Alton Road, south on Alton Road to Burcham Drive and west on Burcham Drive to Abbot Road.

Abbot Road, between Burcham Drive and Whitehills Drive, will be closed to the general public during the same time frame, but local traffic will be maintained to the extent possible in order to provide access to commercial properties in the area.

Community members’ patience is appreciated during this phase of the project. Community members with questions can contact the East Lansing Department of Public Works at (517) 337-9459.

The major street project on Abbot Road is slated for completion in mid August. Visit for additional East Lansing construction information and updates.
