East Lansing Mayor Mark Meadows has signed the master development agreement for the Center City District redevelopment project and demolition staging is scheduled to begin in downtown East Lansing.
Community members are advised that the Albert Avenue Lot (Lot 1), 230 Albert Ave., will be closed to the public beginning Monday, Nov. 6 to begin staging the site for demolition for the project. All vehicles will need to be out of the lot by 6 a.m. Demolition of 125, 133, 135 and 201-209 E. Grand River Ave. is anticipated to be underway by the following week.
To accommodate the demolition and the construction to follow, there will be an eastbound lane closure on Albert Avenue, between Abbot Road and the east end of the Albert Avenue Lot. There will also be a sidewalk closure on Grand River Avenue in the project area between 125 and 209 E. Grand River Ave. Pedestrian detour signs will be in place.
Community members are encouraged to continue to visit their favorite downtown East Lansing businesses during the demolition and construction phases for the Center City District project. All businesses will remain open and accessible.
