McNichols/Livernois Streetscape Project

McNichols/Livernois Streetscape Project

The McNichols/Livernois streetscape project consists of a transformation on Livernois between Clarita Street and 8 Mile and on McNichols from Greenlawn to Livernois. New renovations include new roadway pavement, underground infrastructure, extended sidewalks, removal of the controversial median that runs along Livernois, protected bike lanes, better street lighting and new landscaping.

The focus of this project is to create a more welcoming and appealing environment that's walkable-convenient for it's visitors and more attractive by featuring wider sidewalks for café seating.

These bike lanes were inspired from cities like Vancouver and Indianapolis and the landscaping was inspired by cities like Athens, GA and our own downtown Birmingham, MI.

McNichols/Livernois Streetscape Project
This streetscape project, which is a smaller part of a larger revitalization plan that targets several other neighborhoods in Detroit, will be completed by the end of November 2019. There will be minor construction that carries into Spring 2020 such as cosmetic work which includes landscaping, the installation of benches, a portion of a sidewalk on the west part of Livernois and decorative street lighting.

Livernois will now be populated with free off-street parking lots offering a total of 150 spaces. There is also a free shuttle running Tuesday-Friday and on Saturdays stopping at each of these free parking locations. The shuttle has stops every 15 minutes to help visitors get to their destinations conveniently and efficiently, including students that attend Marygrove College, GESU Catholic School and U of D Mercy.

This beautiful streetscape design will encourage more shopping, dining and pedestrian use of these renovated streets, encouraging all forms of transportation like walking, biking, riding transit and driving cars. It really implements a nice corridor where people feel more safe and welcomed and where businesses can truly thrive.
