[ARCHIVED] Mobilization of Park District Planning Area Redevelopment Site to Begin Next Week

EAST LANSING, Mich. – Mobilization of the Park District Planning Area redevelopment site is expected to begin next week, with sidewalk closures to be put into place for the first phase of the project by as early as Wednesday, Dec. 26.

The initial closures will include:

  • A sidewalk closure on the west side of Abbot Road, from Albert Avenue to Grand River Avenue
  • A sidewalk closure on the north side of Grand River Avenue, from Evergreen Avenue to Abbot Road
  • A sidewalk and road closure on Evergreen Avenue, from Albert Avenue to Grand River Avenue                             

Pedestrian detours will be in place throughout the duration of these closures.

Community members should also keep in mind that there will be a road closure on Albert Avenue, from Abbot Road to Evergreen Avenue, beginning in summer 2019 for infrastructure improvements (including a much-needed realignment of the roadway).

All local businesses will continue to remain open and accessible to customers during this project. Community members with questions can send an email to
