Watch Out for Orange Barrels: More than 75 Infrastructure Projects Coming to Greater Lansing this Su
LANSING, Mich. – The Lansing region will see more than 75 road projects get underway this summer, the Capital Council of Governments (CAPCOG) today announced.
“The strength of our infrastructure is directly connected to the strength of our region,” said Bryan Crenshaw, Ingham County commissioner. “CAPCOG is proud to be advocating for infrastructure investment and every project coming this summer is a step in the right direction.”
The projects, which will take place throughout Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties, include, but are not limited to: road and bridge maintenance and replacement, non-motorized pathway creation, sign and signal upgrades and lighting installation, helping to improve the region’s overall infrastructure. Key projects to be completed include:
Resurfacing Battle Creek Road from Five Point Road to Carlisle Road in Eaton County
Resurfacing M-99 from Edgewood Boulevard to 500 south of Victor Avenue in Ingham County
Resurfacing I-496 from I-96 to US 127 in Ingham County
Repairing concrete on US-127 from M-21 to US-127 BL in Clinton County
“Each of the projects play a critical role in enhancing and improving infrastructure in our region,” said Terrance Augustine, Eaton County commissioner. “The core of our region’s infrastructure is dependent on the strength of our local roads, sidewalks and bridges.”
Funding for the summer road projects comes from federal, state and local governments and totals an investment of more than $35 million into the region’s infrastructure.
“These projects will be highly advantageous to our region, but there is still more work to be done,” said Bob Showers, Clinton County commissioner. “CAPCOG will keep working with state lawmakers to get the equitable funding our region needs to continue to grow and prosper.”
