What Are The Most Dangerous Roads Around Lansing, Michigan?

In general, driving in and around Lansing, Michigan, can be complicated, especially close to Michigan State University in East Lansing because of the sheer traffic volume. Other areas, however, can be equally problematic.

The intersection of Grand River and M.A.C. avenues, and Harrison Road and Michigan Avenue in East Lansing are known to be two of the most dangerous intersections in East Lansing, according to the East Lansing Police Department.

In Lansing Township, the intersections of East Saginaw Street and North Homer Street, as well as South Martin Luther King Boulevard and West Holmes Road are known to be especially dangerous for drivers.

Drivers also have to contend with high traffic volumes and lots of car accidents around many other major highways and roads, including I-96, I-69, I-496, US-127, M-99 and M-43, among others.

US-127 Construction

Spring of 2024 comes the launch of another phase of the US 127 rebuild between 96 and 496. As many locals use this route to get to and from work it is well known that there are already significant backups even during normal conditions. This project is expected to last for 4 years until 2027 and will include reconfiguring the interchanges and bridges as well as widening the freeway.

In Michigan, the downside of construction projects and road improvements comes traffic backups and congestion. Unfortunately drivers do not always anticipate the congestion and are driving too fast for the conditions resulting in serious car crashes resulting in significant injury or death. These car accidents are much more devastating at high speeds on the freeway system traveling through and around Lansing. Typically the driver who collides from the rear is found to be the at-fault driver.


If you are injured in an automobile accident, it is important to perform an investigation immediately to make sure that your rights are protected. Typically you do not have the time to do this yourself as you are trying to recover or care for a loved one. That is where we come in.

The first step is to obtain your UD10 otherwise known as a traffic crash or police report. This report contains the identifying information of the parties involved in the accident and witnesses. Not all reports are completed thoroughly so it is important to review the report immediately so that we can fill in the blanks with any additional information.

This may require hiring a private investigator to go door-to-door for any witnesses near the crash scene. We may need to request traffic camera footage. We may need to request video from the police officers dash camera or body camera to obtain information that was left out of the report. The more time that passes after a crash, the more difficult it becomes to fill in the blanks. Some footage is deleted after a short period of time. This evidence is all useful to determine the actions leading up to a crash and documenting the correct at fault party as sometimes the conclusion in the police report is not accurate.

After gathering the information above, if it is still unclear or disputed as to fault, it is important to retain a crash reconstruction expert to review the information and be able to provide an opinion as to the causation of the crash that would be admissible in court. It is important to retain a skilled and experienced attorney to navigate this process. At Bahrie Law, PLLC, we are here to help you through every step of this process.
