protected-bike-lane-in-chicago-il-photo-credit-the-chicago-bicycle-advocateAn open house-style meeting to gather public input from interested parties about the proposed changes to US-12 (Michigan Avenue) to add protected bike lanes to Michigan Avenue between Livernois and Cass Avenue. Michigan Avenue is a State highway and the City of Detroit is working with MDOT and community groups throughout this process.

As part of ongoing pedestrinization efforts, The City of Detroit and MDOT are proposing a pilot project to add protected bike lanes on US-12 (Michigan Avenue) from Cass Avenue to Livernois. The change would connect the Livernois bike pathway and the planned Cass Avenue bike path. Existing bike lanes adjacent to motor vehicle travel lanes would be moved inside the parking lane to allow bike riders to travel next to the curb. Areas without bike lanes would be added.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, Sept. 22 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at UAW Local 22, 4300 Michigan Ave.City of Detroit Department of Public Works and Traffic Engineering staff, Planning and Design Department staffand Department of Neighborhoods representatives will provide vital information regarding the project. The Michigan Department of Transportation along with residents and interested stakeholders will also participate.
