Washtenaw Avenue Corridor Plan

Public workshops are scheduled for May 28, 29, 30 and 31, in various locations and times near the corridor (see sidebar), to get public feedback on proposed future road configuration alternatives, such as adding bike lanes, sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, streetscapes, buffers, and transit stops along the corridor.

Project Summary

ReImagine Washtenaw is a multi-jurisdictional land use, transportation and economic development planning initiative to transform the Washtenaw Avenue corridor.  The  to a safe, multi-modal, public transit-enhanced corridor, with new, high-quality mixed-use development, enhanced transit service and amenities, resulting in a corridor with sense of place. 

Elected officials and professional staff planners from the cities of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti and Pittsfield and Ypsilanti Townships have been leading this effort.  Additional partners, including the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority, Michigan Department of Transportation, Washtenaw County, Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Washtenaw Area Transportation Study, are also collaborating.

The Joint Technical Committee is currently involved in multiple projects to make the road more friendly to pedestrians and bicyclists, and address traffic congestion and land use issues along the corridor. Master Plans, Zoning Ordinances and Design Guidelines are being updated to ensure future developments consider walkability, transit needs, and creating a sense of place.
