Kelly Rd COM Event Flyer Final-page-001

Since Fall 2023, representatives from the cities of Eastpointe, Detroit, and Harper Woods and other members of the Kelly Road Corridor Improvement Steering Committee have been working on conceptual designs for Kelly Road from 7 Mile to 10 Mile to create a safer, more vibrant corridor. The conceptual redesign is aimed at including:

  • improved public spaces, seating and lighting options,
  • better multi-modal transportation pathways and safer traffic circulation, and
  • added landscaping and green stormwater infrastructure.

The redesign options have been guided by 'complete street' standards and incorporate strategies, proven effective by the 'vision zero', to eliminate traffic-related deaths and serious injuries.

In addition to the streetscape redesign, the committee has been working on a comprehensive Corridor Improvement Plan that also focuses on way to further uplift existing and support potential new businesses and real estate development opportunities.
