BWL to Close Lane on North Capitol Avenue
for Steam Work
The Lansing Board of Water & Light will close one lane on North Capitol Avenue at West Shiawassee Street, and restrict turns from West Shiawassee Street onto North Capitol Avenue starting Monday, July 15.
This closure will remain in place for approximately two weeks. The work is being done to remove a deteriorating steam vault, and perform repairs on a steam main.
The crosswalk of North Capitol Avenue on the south side of West Shiawassee Street will be closed, but all other crosswalks will remain open. Pedestrians can expect to be directed around the work zone.
Access to local area residents and businesses adjacent to the work areas will be maintained during the project. Drivers are advised to expect delays and to seek alternate routes.
