CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

 

Construction of the North Connector Streetscapes is underway on Howard and Mason Streets. Concrete has been poured on Mason, and the outside westbound lane on Michigan is closed from Monroe to Mason for the remainder of the week while concrete cures. 

 

We thank community members and visitors for both their excitement and patience as Downtown Dearborn collaboratively aims to:

 

*Improve both the vehicular and non-motorized experience through Dearborn, including traffic calming and dedicated bike lanes on Monroe Street

*Promote alternative transportation choices

*Make Downtown safer for the pedestrian and cyclist

*Enhance neighborhood character

 

As a reminder, businesses will be open during construction, and we encourage patrons, community members and visitors to continue to shop local in Downtown Dearborn.
