  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 952 East Michigan Avenue East Lansing, Michigan - East Lansing

    The bike lanes along Mich. Ave., particularly in the west-bound direction, desperately need sweeping. There's a lot of glass and construction debris that's been piling up in addition to the usual road debris.

  • 1510 East Michigan Avenue Lansing, Michigan - Lansing

    Here is the image folder, you can see when they were taken and descriptions of the photos:

    This dumpster is located in-between properties at 1504 and 1510 Michigan Avenue. It has been seen at this location directly behind the CATA bus stop for at least the last 6 months before starting to document it, where I have often seen a man emptying a hauling trailer contents into it. The garbage goes everywhere, he is careless and it is disgusting. Garbage and appliances are often on the side, around, and behind the dumpster.

    It appears to be nothing but a trash hauling operation located on Michigan Avenue. These are pictures taken from the CATA bus stop directly in front of it, and the same view you will see from the street. Found on Google Maps, an image before the CATA bus station was moved from the front of the Heart Center with the dumpster located in the pictures: http://goo.gl/maps/TCCXR

    Since there is no drive located where the garbage dump is located, the truck must drive over the curb to empty the dumpster. It is destroying the sidewalk. Is the owner going to pay to repave the sidewalk he is destroying, or the taxpayers?

    The CATA bus stop was moved in 2012, so this has been going on for almost three years at least, probably longer. A garbage dump leading up to the capitol of Michigan is probably not the best image for Lansing to be putting forth. Reported to city council member through email on 7/15/13. Premise inspector sent out afternoon of 7/17/13. That is the last I have heard. New pictures added since.

    I think it's time this is removed from the street leading up to our capital.

  • 1300-1306 Jerome Street Lansing, Michigan - Lansing

    If Jerome is going to be promoted as the recommended bike route parrallel to Michigan Ave. (which it has been and is by many bicyclists and advocates in the area as it is a nice, quiet route through a lovely neighborhood) then this needs a safer, better engineered solution to allow bicyclists to pass through than the current circus tricks one has to do to travel down Jerome.

  • 5005 Hughes Rd Lansing, Michigan - Lansing

    The following case was heard in 2014 by Magistrate Millmore and her DEFAULT judgment is below. Compliance has not been maintained as the images reflect. A 20 Ft. boat trailer has been parked in the illegal driveway for over 2 months .Code compliance officers Mike Morrison and Greg Scrimger have been contacted innumerable times and confirmed that the court order has not been followed but responds "what can we do?" They will not forcibly remove the driveway by re-installing the curb. I was told "he has rights". What about my rights? I have been told multiple times it "was turned over to Scott Sandford" who I believe has been complicit with this resident and has disregarded his responsibility to enforce the court order. I have the right to live in a residential neighborhood to expect the enforcement of zoning laws. Code compliance also informed me that the zoning administrator Stachowiak has disregarded the zoning laws and the Court Order and allowed the Illegal driveway to remain.
