City’s De Soto Rd. discussion Jan. 25

January 11, 2007

A Lansing City Council work session originally penciled in for tonight has been delayed until later this month.

City Administrator Mike Smith said the session, which will deal with funding questions surrounding improvements on De Soto Road, was delayed until 7 p.m. Jan. 25 to allow city staffers more time to crunch numbers and come up with funding scenarios.

One plan is to widen De Soto to four lanes, in segments, from Eisenhower Road to 4-H Road.

The city received a $2 million federal earmark in 2005 to help with De Soto - one of only two north-south thoroughfares that span the city - but there is some worry that if the city doesn't move fast enough on the project the earmark may disappear.
