Jos Campau Streetscape Project
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.
Weekly Update – Monday, October 21 to Friday, October 25
Finishing touches on phase 4 working in phase 5
- Beginning of the week will complete the concrete pours and brick paver work.
- New trees will be placed and will start the porous resin around the tree wells.
- Thursday and Friday they will complete the asphalt wearing course from Franklin to Jefferson.
What changes will I 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.
