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.
Street enhancements from M-39 Service Drive to Berg Rd.
Construction will begin in the summer of 2019 and continue through the winter of 2020.
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.
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.
Grand River will remain open during construction and access to businesses will be maintained. Free public parking is available at a number of locations.
