15th St Streetscape Project

What is going on? 

The City of Detroit is currently in design of the 15th Street Streetscape Project which will run from Bagley to Lacombe Dr. The project will include new sidewalk, lighting, landscaping, traffic calming measures, street resurfacing and pavement markings and signage. 

Below is a concept plot that shows the changes and overview of the project that was communicated at our last community meeting.

When will the 15th Streetscape Project happen?

The project will start construction in the late spring of 2023 and is expected to be completed by the spring/summer of 2024

Why 15th Street

The project stems from the neighborhood plane which the community identified 15th Street between Davison and Carpenter as the neighborhood's strongest retail corridor in which they were concerned about the conditions of sidewalks, the lack of designated crossings at major streets, and cars speeding.

Who can I contact about further information on the Project?
