CATA is hosting two “Public Open Houses” in January regarding the BRT project. If you have questions or comments regarding this project, please consider attending one or both of these Open Houses.
Considerations for Bicycles Along the BRT Corridor – Lansing/East Lansing Open House event will be held on January 7 at the Peoples Church at 200 West Grand River Avenue in East Lansing, MI. This event will be held from 6 p.m to 7 p.m. The purpose of this open house is to gather feedback from the local community on the value of incorporating bicycles in the corridor, and to solicit input on how this might be accomplished so that it improves the safety and connectivity of the overall regional non-motorized network.
Designing the Grand River Avenue Corridor – Meridian Township Open House event will be held on January 14 at the Meridian Township Hall at 5151 Okemos Road in Okemos, MI. This event will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The purpose of this open house is to gather input from Meridian Township residents to determine the elements that matter most. Potential elements that could be incorporated in the design include bike lanes or sharrows, wider sidewalks, and public space enhancements, such as landscaping and public art.
