Just a a heads up if you are a usual driver in downtown Lansing, as parts of Malcolm X Street will be closed starting today. The closing starts with part of Malcolm X Street between Townsend Street and Capitol Avenue. The construction and closure of the road will be happening until September 22nd.

The reason for the closing is because the Lansing Board of Water and Light will be restoring the pavement and installing electrical transmission poles for the Central Distribution Project. There will be a detour to help you get around the construction as well.

You can see more on the Central Distribution Project here.
