Jos Campau Streetscape Project
Jos Campau Streetscape Project between Jefferson and the Riverfront
As you may have recently seen, we have been wrapping up much of our construction activities for the season. We were able to complete almost all of the hardscape elements of the project leaving us with a few remaining items to be completed in the spring when the weather is warmer.
Over the next few weeks, the lighting work will continue but this should not cause any lane closures.
We will be back out in the spring for landscaping and a few other items that require the weather to be above a certain temperature. Once we get closer to that time, we will post an update about those details.
Joseph Campau serves as a vital connection from Jefferson Ave to the Riverfront as a thriving business corridor. The goals of this project are to improve mobility, especially to the riverfront, and create a beautiful corridor to encourage active sidewalk life, strengthen foot traffic for existing and new businesses, and boost community life.
What changes will I see?
This project will include roadway resurfacing, pavement markings, furnishings, a 2-way protected cycle track for bicycles, improved lighting, landscaping and connection opportunities to the Detroit Riverwalk.
Why Are These Changes Being Made?
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.
Jos Campau will have intermittent road closures with posted detour signage, and access to businesses will be maintained.
