ST. JOHNS — Every Thursday, Bath resident Michele Leonard hikes along the trails at Sleepy Hollow State Park in Laingsburg, Michigan. When the weather allows, she goes for a dip in Lake Ovid, enjoying the beauty that the park offers. Other times, she will venture to St. Johns Park or Granger Meadows.
Capital Area Transportation Authority continues its efforts in redeveloping its No. 1 bus route to the Bus Rapid Transit, which will be expected to start around 2016. Plans have been slowed for about 3 months because it is in an environmental assessment phase, which calls for additional studies and requires public hearings. The route runs from Meridian Mall in Okemos to the Michigan Capitol in Lansing. The changes will include an addition of lanes for buses only.
