The Michigan Department of Transportation, in coordination with the City of Detroit, is conducting a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study along Michigan Avenue from I-96 to Campus Martius Park in the City of Detroit. This is an exciting opportunity to develop the plan for the future of Michigan Avenue. The PEL process approach to transportation decision-making considers environmental, historical, cultural and feasibility issues early in the transportation planning process. Various forms of public involvement will be used, including local and governmental advisory committee meetings to help the project team steer the planning efforts and communicate effectively. These meetings will be staggered with larger public meetings.
