East Jefferson Streetscape Project

East Jefferson is one of Detroit’s great streets and serves as a key corridor connecting strong neighborhoods with the riverfront, Belle Isle, and Downtown.

The first step towards improving Jefferson was to address safety as it is one of the City’s highest crash corridors, especially for people walking and biking. Earlier this year, the City installed a temporary design as part of the Eastside Bike Network that in part will inform how East Jefferson could be transformed.

East Jefferson is central to the neighborhoods it serves including Jefferson Chalmers, the East Riverfront, Islandview, the Greater Villages, and more. The City of Detroit is planning improvements to East Jefferson to support businesses, improve safety, and enhance transit service.
