Notice of Public Outreach: Joe Louis Greenway Phase 1 Construction Contracts 2nd Meeting
The Joe Louis Greenway is a proposed 27.5-mile pathway for walkers, joggers, and cyclists. The Framework Plan finalized the route of the greenway, which was largely based on feedback from residents at 57 public meetings. The first phase of construction is from Warren Avenue to Fullerton Avenue, approximately 3 miles, would start construction in June of 2021 pending approval. Full construction of Phase 1 costs $30 and includes environmental remediation, new parks, community hub, and security camera network, walking and running paths, bike lanes, stormwater infrastructure, and street furniture.
A common theme from residents at the public meetings was the safety of the greenway. The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, Detroit Police Department, and Integral Blue were consulted for camera models and locations. Installation of the camera surveillance technology and bike lanes is estimated at $1.43 Million.
Installation of bike lanes will cost approximately $1.40 Million. Approximately 93% of the proposed bike lanes will be off-street.
