Our Task

This project specifically focused on improving pedestrian access across 14 Mile Road and Main Street in Downtown Clawson.  It also looked at how to integrate bicycle facilities into the downtown area and improve the streetscape to further enhance the pedestrian environment and create a strong sense of place. Public participation was encourage through the process via a on-line survey and two public open house sessions.

Four of the proposed pedestrian crossing islands along 14 Mile Road were approved for the Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) and will be constructed by July 2014.
