E. Eisenhower work to begin Sept. 5

August 24, 2006

Work on a road-widening project on East Eisenhower Road will begin a little later than city officials had thought.

Wednesday, the city issued a news release saying the work would get under way on Tuesday, Sept. 5. That's a week and a day later than the Aug. 8 date the city had announced earlier in the week.

City officials attributed the postponed start to "administrative delays."

The project replaces the existing road with a standard collector street, including storm sewers, curbs and gutters and asphaltic concrete pavement. The project is expected to require 110 working days, which could push completion into summer 2007.

D.F. Freeman is the prime contractor for the $2.3 million project. The city is paying for 20 percent of the project with federal funds picking up the remainder.

Questions about the project can be referred to the Lansing Public Works Department at 727-2400.
