Beginning next year, pedestrians will have to look both ways when crossing several downtown Lansing streets.

The city plans to convert six one-way streets to two way traffic.  Lansing officials anticipate the change will take effect in mid-2020, although a date for the transition has not been set.

City officials hope two-way traffic will make businesses more visible to passersby.  The city received $3.3 million from the state this year for converting one-way streets.  That cost includes the installation of new traffic signals.

This fiscal year, Lansing is putting more than $8 million in total local, state and federal funding toward road repair projects.
