Project Details

MDOT in partnership with the City of Detroit, will be resurfacing and providing streetscape improvements to approximately 2.8 miles of the road. The goals of this project include improving mobility by implementing traffic calming measures and strengthening foot traffic for existing and new businesses.

What is Going On

Street enhancements from M-39 Service Drive to Berg Rd.

When Will the Project Happen?

Construction will begin in the summer of 2019 and continue through the winter of 2020.

What Changes Will See?

This project will include road resurfacing, water main work through DWSD, two-way cycle track, improved on street parking, pedestrian islands, mid-block crossings, landscaping, new signalized intersections, and bus islands.

Why Are These Changes Being Made in the Streetscape Nodes?

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.

Getting Around

Grand River will remain open during construction and access to businesses will be maintained. Free public parking is available at a number of locations.
