Directions to LCC

Lansing Community College (LCC)is located in downtown Lansing, Michigan, just a few block north of the Capital building. Lansing is in the southern half of the Michigan's lower peninsula.

The directions below are for travelers using US 127, I 96 or I 69. These are the routes that I think are the easiest, not necessarily the shortest. All routes follow I496 to Grand Ave north to LCC.

Driving around Lansing is always a joy for out-of-towners, as the downtown is a maze of one-way streets. We also have a Grand River Avenue that runs east-west and a Grand Avenue that runs north-south, which confuses many non-Lansingites. Finally, parking is not the easiest thing to find mid-day. There is a city parking ramp on Shaiwassee, a LCC ramp on Grand Ave, and metered parking along the streets. The farther away from downtown, the cheapter the meters.
