FEMA project will close Mt. Hosmer for at least two weeks

City of Lansing officials report that Mt. Hosmer will be closed to all foot and vehicle traffic for a period of at least the next two weeks, as a hillside stabilization and road repaving project will be taking place near the entrance area to the City of Lansing water reservoir. The recent history of heavy rains over the last several summers has caused areas of hillside erosion along the road ascending Mt. Hosmer, with that road having been reduced to a single lane of traffic (as evident by the sign in the photo above) recently to help avoid any incidents or further damage. The project got underway Tuesday, April 11 and is being funded with money received from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Standard photo by B.J. Tomlinson.
