Signs went up today informing motorists of an upcoming road closure for Aurelius Road beginning Monday, June 13. But, one needed to do some digging to get full details. I did so, and have a full explanation for you, complete with official links!!

The project is a fairly major upgrade that will also affect travelers on Cavanaugh Road. According to the City of Lansing's website, Aurelius Road will be closed to through traffic between Forest Road and Jolly Road, utilizing Collins Road as a detour. Cavanaugh Road will be closed to through traffic between Pennsylvania Avenue and Dunckel Road, utilizing Jolly Road as a detour.

The project is scheduled to be completed by June 30, 2016. Aurelius Road will be completely resurfaced from the Sycamore Creek bridge to just north of Cavanaugh. Traffic signal modernization at the intersection of Aurelius and Cavanaugh is also planned.
