Unwinding Woodward

According to the Detroit Free Press, Woodward is scheduled to be "unwound" sometime in 2024-2025. There have been decades of concern about the Woodward Loop because it redirects traffic around and out of Pontiac more than inviting in. Concerns have brought forth a commitment by MDOT to schedule a bulk of the construction in the coming years. With bikes, walking and a general "slowing down" of traffic. MDOT's project will include new sidewalks, traffic signals and bike paths. The overall goal, per MDOT, is to turn Woodward Avenue into a series of pedestrian-friendly two-way boulevards. This design will create slower traffic to inspire more people to stop, shop and dine.  And will hopefully enhance pedestrian safety and increase connectivity with neighbourhoods and businesses.
