GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The intersection of Leonard Street at Fuller Avenue will be closing for about a month beginning Monday, July 31.

The closing isn’t unexpected. It’s Phase 2 of a major water main project that so far has closed Leonard Street from Fuller Avenue to Ashford Avenue near College Avenue since April. That work has already affected the businesses at the intersection.

The closure affects some 37,000 vehicles a day that go through the intersection, according to Grand Rapids Communications Director Steve Guitar.
