Conner Creek Greenway Master Plan

The Conner Creek Greenway is approximately eight miles long running from Maharas Park on the Detroit River to 8 Mile Road.  It roughly follows the historic route of the Conner Creek, which now has been enclosed in storm sewers.  The corridor passes through significant industrial and commercial developments.

Our Task

The greenway will provide a key non-motorized link between numerous parks, cultural sites, recreation centers and neighborhoods.  The challenges the project presented include working with extremely busy road corridors and industrial landscapes. The master plan includes recommendations for road reconfigurations and intersection improvements to safely move people along the greenway.
