  • Kalamazoo And Regent St. Lansing, MI - Lansing

    The small section of bike lane along westbound Kalamazoo St. just past Regent is in very bad condition and poses a majority safety concern for bicyclists who come upon it unexpectedly. It's been like this for sometime now. The pavement is crumbling severely. I believe a plow may have caught some of the deteriorating pavement last winter and actually pushed part of the roadbed up and onto the curb leaving a dangerous mixture of deep potholes and mounded asphalt. I've been meaning to post this for some time now. I first noticed it this Spring, but it has gotten progressively worse over the summer and into the fall.

    It's such a small patch, it would be great if the City could still get this fixed this fall, potentially when you are making other roadway repairs around town. The Township just finished patching a small portion of road and bike lane just East of this. Would have been a great time for neighborly collaboration.

    3238 Beau Jardin Lansing, Michigan - Lansing

    There are quite a few potholes (deep and within a narrow proximity) that are causing damage to cars. I understand the ground temperature needs to rise first, but if these could be made a priority it would be most appreciated!

  • Pothole Open
    4915 Belle Chasse Blvd. Lansing, Michigan - Lansing

    A section of Beau Jardin runs through our apartment community and the pothole situation is abhorrent; we have several that are at least 6" deep and 12" in diameter, causing a public relations nightmare for our leasing office. Any attention that can be paid to this matter is greatly appreciated!

    Respectfully,

    There are several potholes in a close knit vicinity that are causing damage to cars. I understand the ground still needs to thaw, but would like this addressed and fixed as soon as possible. Thank you so much!

  • 217 N. Jenison Lansing, MI - Lansing

    House has been apparently abandoned since summer. At which time the home owner left two large dogs inside for 6 weeks, unattended without airconditioning in 100 degree weather. The dogs have been removed. However, the house is violating multiple codes. There is a large broken window on the north end of the house, there is no secure closure on this window. There are tires piled up in the driveway. There are stains on the front of the house dripping down the white siding. The BWL has turned off power to the house. There is trash in the backyard (trampolines, debris, etc). Since the house is apparently vacant, it was used during a B&E in which the thiefs hid their bicycles in the backyard to hop a fence and gain entry into the backyard of the house where they broke in.

  • E Kalamazoo St. Lansing, Michigan - Lansing

    The conditions of the bike lanes heading both east and west along Kalamazoo are dangerous. The bike lanes are full of potholes, and the lanes are covered in broken glass, gravel, and debris from 127 to Pennsylvania. The debris could easily puncture tires and cause a rider to lose traction. The debris is so thick and expansive at some points that it obscures the bike lane markers. Having a bike lane in such conditions is effectively as good as have no bike lane. What makes this even worse is that there are no alternatives for biking between Lansing and East Lansing unless one rides on sidewalks or risks riding along fast-moving cars on busy streets.

  • Kalamazoo Street Lansing, Michigan - Lansing

    The Kalamazoo bike lane (as I imagine are all the bike lanes and shoulders within the City) is extremely dangerous right now. It is filled with a thick accumulation of dirt, glass, and other debris (see photo). The bottom of the downhill eastbound stretch right in front of Hunter Park is especially dangerous as it has collected all the debris from the street over the entire winter. Riding over that stretch at higher speeds from going downhill is extremely hazardous, especially because the parallel roadway right through there is laden with deep pot holes. Scary combination, especially if are not aware of the hazard before descending down the hill. I notified the traffic department about this problem area almost a month ago. Hopefully you can get out there to have it cleaned up right away. With today as the first day of Bike Month, it certainly would be appropriate and appreciated to sweep all the bike lanes/shoulders throughout the City. Thanks for looking into this.
