Bridge Will Honor Slain Old Town Pioneer

By  | 

The man who pioneered Lansing's Old Town neighborhood will be memorialized there by a bridge that bears his name.

The Lansing City Council voted Monday night to rename the bridge that carries Grand River Avenue over the river in Old Town the Robert P. Busby Memorial Bridge.

The name change was suggested by Mayor Virg Bernero shortly after Busby, owner of the neighborhood's Creole Gallery, was found dead in the gallery in late February. A man he had taken in killed Busby and later took his own life.
