A busy street in Jackson will close for most of Monday, March 15 so the Department of Public Works (DPW) can remove three dead trees. Lansing Avenue between N. Blackstone Street and W. Ganson Street will close to traffic from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Because this is a busy street that connects Downtown Jackson to the north side neighborhoods, the DPW is closing the street so the dead trees can be removed safely. The trees are being taken down so they do not pose any danger to the public or property if they come down suddenly.
A posted detour will guide drivers around the closure, encouraging them to use Steward Avenue and Trail Street. Access to the Jackson County Medical Care Facility will be maintained. Any updates on the closure will be posted on the City website and social media platforms.
