DDA Survey on Healthy Streets Downtown
The DDA is conducting a survey to collect public opinion about the Healthy Streets Pilot Programs implemented at Miller/Catherine, Division/Broadway, S. Main, and State/North University, Participate in the survey here: For more information about the Healthy Streets Pilot Program, visit the DDA's website: From the DDA website: WHY? The COVID-19 pandemic has: Increased the demand for biking and walking space due to the need for physical distancing coupled with decreased transit service and capacity Increased pressure on curbside space due to the need for physical distancing coupled with reduced operational capacity for indoor commercial activity Decreased traffic volumes leading to less congested streets resulting in more speeding HOW? These pilot projects will be installed using temporary treatments. Staff will monitor the pilots through data collection and public feedback and will adapt the projects as needed. DDA funded pilots include: Miller / Catherine from First to Division – two-way separated walking/biking lane on the north side of the road Division Street from Packard to the Broadway Bridge – two-way separated walking/biking lane on the east side of the road South Main Street from Packard to William – one-way separated walking/biking lane on both sides of road Packard at the “triangle” (Hill to State) – one-way separated bike lane on both sides of road (fills a gap in the bike lane network in this location) State St/N. University – two-way separated bike lane connecting to the William St. Bikeway City funded pilots include: Broadway Bridge – two-way separated walking/biking lane on the east side of bridge and additional pedestrian space provided on the west of bridge Pontiac Trail/Swift St. – connection to separated facility on Broadway Bridge (Swift closed at Wright through Pontiac) South Main from Packard to Stadium – one-way separated walking/biking lanes on both sides of road Packard from Eisenhower to Platt – one-way separated walking/biking lanes on both sides of road WHO? The Ann Arbor DDA and the City of Ann Arbor are working collaboratively on these pilot projects. Locations within the downtown are managed and funded by the DDA with the continuation of these streets beyond downtown managed and funded by the City.
