As of this posting in late September, Lafayette is still officially closed south of Leonard, and Leonard is torn up from just west of Union to just west of Lafayette. Diamond is the nearest major north-south road that can be used to reach us from the east. This means the only way to approach us without driving through the neighborhood is to use Plainfield. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience, but the construction crews assure us they are working to reopen Lafayette and Leonard as quickly as possible.
Right now we recommend taking Carrier street (half a block north of Leonard) from Plainfield. You will need to drive past the Road Closed sign on Lafayette to reach our driveway.
If you are reaching us by bus: Route 11 (see this link for The Rapid’s official page) is being detoured onto Madison south of Leonard during construction. The nearest stop to our building is at Plainfield and Leonard. Route 15 (see this link for The Rapid’s official page) is being detoured up Diamond, so it may be better to take the 11.

We had a great time representing Catherine’s and supporting a great cause at the Susan G. Komen West Michigan Race for the Cure this weekend, where our own Laura Boom raised over $800!
