The City of Detroit is investing $80 million in bond funding to improve streetscapes and commercial corridors across the City. These streetscape improvements support the City’s neighborhood planning efforts to improve safety and quality of life for Detroit residents. Streetscape improvements might include a variety of amenities including sidewalks, bicycle lanes, improved lighting, landscaping, neighborhood branding, and more.
The goal of implementing a streetscape is to achieve a beautiful corridor where neighborhood businesses can thrive, and where people feel safe and welcomed. The improvements will better encourage all forms of transportation including walking, biking, riding transit and taking a car.
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the City of Detroit will host two open house-style public meetings to kick off Phase 2 of cons
