Bike and ped improvement meeting in Southwest Detroit

Last year the city of Detroit received special funding for improving non-motorized safety along West Vernor Avenue in Southwest Detroit. This work is related to last July’s walkability audits with Dan Burden along this same stretch of roadway.

Now the city is hosting an open house to discuss their plans to improve safety along this corridor, including bike lanes.

Here are more details from the city of Detroit Traffic Engineering department:

Vernor Ave (Waterman to Lansing) Corridor Safety Improvement Project

Come to this open house to learn more about plans for traffic and safety improvements along the corridor, including new crosswalks, upgraded traffic signals, and changes to striping and lane use on Vernor Avenue. This project is intended to promote pedestrian and vehicular safety and the vitality of the area.

Tuesday, March 16, 2010, 6:00pm – 7:30pm
