My Town EGR: Lakeside Drive construction enters new phase

EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—Work on Lakeside Drive enters a new phase Monday.

Crews contracted by the Michigan Department of Transportation will be resurfacing the street and replacing the sidewalks.  Lakeside Drive will remain closed to through traffic.  Those visiting businesses within the construction zone should expect one-way, northbound traffic from Wealthy to Greenwood.  No parking will be allowed in that area, and the boat launch will be closed on weekdays. Phase two construction is expected to be finished on Oct. 4, weather permitting.

Construction on Lakeside Drive began April 28 with crews tearing up the road to replace the waterline.  That first phase of construction wrapped up several weeks ago.  The second stage of work was delayed due to a different work contract with the state.
