Woodward Avenue Non-Motorized PlanThe Woodward Avenue Action Association is pleased to announce that in partnership with engineering firm Giffels-Webster, we are closer to finding ways to make Woodward more pedestrian & bike friendly. the Woodward Avenue Non-motorized Plan will focus on Woodward between 8 mile and Maple and will identify ways for communities to plan and zone safer routes for non-motorist users of Woodward Avenue. Some of the elements being looked at for this plan include reducing speed limits, developing landscaped buffer zones and incorporation of bike lanes.
This study was prompted by the city of Royal Oak, who is now beginning a non-motorized study for the entire city. Current non-motorized efforts have been collected by the cities involved; Ferndale, Pleasant Ridge, Huntington Woods, Royal Oak, and Birmingham to ensure that all current efforts are expanded upon. Giffels-Webster will also identify linkages into the involved communities off of Woodward Avenue.
Giffels Webster will present it's findings and suggestions at a private meeting to the involved stakeholders and then the plan will be made public.
