Streets for People cover


For the last two years, the City of Detroit has been working on Streets for People, or the City of Detroit's Transportation Master Plan. This Plan will guide the future of where we make safety improvements to Detroit's streets to make it easier and safer for all Detroiters to move around the city. Improving the City's biking network and amenities are key components of this plan. The full Plan will be available in early October.
