Current detours, delays and other route updates:

Saturday, October 24, 2015: Possible delays due to GVSU Homecoming 5K Race on Allendale Campus from 10:00a - 12:00p. Vehicle traffic should be able to pass as race traffic clears.

The City of Grand Rapids will be conducting a trial traffic study next week.

From Monday, October 26 to Friday, October 30, the right most east-bound lane of Michigan Street between Bostwick Avenue and Barclay Avenue will be closed (see map). This is the lane that is currently marked “bus only” in front of the Spectrum Health Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, Butterworth Hospital and the Meijer Heart Center.

Temporary barricades will direct traffic appropriately. The impact on traffic flow is expected to be minimal. Any vehicle delay will be monitored during the trial to aid in the city’s decision-making process for possible permanent lane closures.
