    Battle Creek Transit’s 4S Capital SW bus route will detour around this tree work using Meadow, Riverside, and Minges, both inbound and outbound. The bus will have to skip stops at Country Club Boulevard, and outbound stops at Minges/Capital. Look for temporary stops at Meadow/Capital SW and Minges/Capital SW for these two days.

For the community’s information, Consumers Energy also has a project downtown this week that requires them to shut off power overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. This will take place from 11 p.m.- 6 a.m. and affect a small number of customers near the corner of Jackson and McCamly streets. Consumers already has notified those customers.

As always, work is weather dependent. We appreciate everyone’s patience as crews complete these projects.
