In May 2017, Lansing voters elected Patty Eidam mayor. Eidam and the new administration have focused on acquiring grants from county, state, and federal governments to improve the village in several ways. Two years into the transformation, the efforts are paying off.

The village acquired and used a $640,000 grant from the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association to resurface Wentworth Avenue from Ridge Road to Bernice Road, according to Village Administrator Dan Podgorski. “Now we’re taking the next step,” he said. “Residents will see a lot of upgrade work from Ridge Road to I-80.”

Lansing will convert that part of Ridge Road to three lanes instead of four, with one center lane used for both turns either way. “It’s the way Ridge Road is set up to the south, so drivers should adapt rather quickly,” Podgorski said.
