Joseph Campau serves as a vital connection from Jefferson Ave to the Riverfront as a thriving business corridor. The goals of this project are to improve mobility, especially to the riverfront, and create a beautiful corridor to encourage active sidewalk life, strengthen foot traffic for existing and new businesses, and boost community life.
What Changes Will See?
This project will include roadway resurfacing, pavement markings, furnishings, a 2-way protected cycle track for bicycles, improved lighting, landscaping and connection opportunities to the Detroit Riverwalk.
Why Are These Changes Being Made?
The goal of a streetscape project is to achieve a beautiful corridor where neighborhood businesses can thrive and where people feel safe and welcomed. The improvements will better support all forms of transportation including walking, biking, riding transit and taking a car.
Jos Campau will have intermittent road closures with posted detour signage, and access to businesses will be maintained.
