Project Details

Joseph Campau serves as a vital connection from Jefferson Ave to the Riverfront as a thriving business corridor.

    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.

    Getting Around

    Jos Campau will have intermittent road closures with posted detour signage, and access to businesses will be maintained.
