BACKGROUND:
MDOT will invest approximately $200,000 in 2020 to remove the far right lane on Homer Street between Vine Street and the northbound US-127 exit ramp to M-43 as part of its safety program. This will improve the sight distance for turning onto or crossing Homer Street and is expected to reduce crashes along the corridor. MDOT is working on this project with local partners, including the City of Lansing and the Lansing Board of Water of Light, to reduce cost and increase efficiency.
