Trucks Banned from Wood Street?

If some residents have their way no large trucks will be able to travel on Lansing and Lansing Township's Wood St. for safety reasons.

Those for the proposal say the large trucks resulting from development in the area increase the risk to pedestrians.

They say no continuous sidewalks between E. Grand River Ave. and Lake Lansing Rd. add to the danger.

Local business who need the trucks to travel on the roads say they're considering the proposal -- even if it threatens to add to their bottom lines.

Both business and residents say you can't measure the cost of safety.

On july 21st there will be a special meeting scheduled for the discussion of this proposal.
