Road Diet Meeting Feb. 19 at 5:30 pm

For the past few years, the City of Frankenmuth has taken steps to implement it’s adopted “Complete Streets Plan.” This plan puts a focus on all users of the street including vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, etc. One of the suggested improvements included studying Main Street to determine ways to improve safety.

During this time, the City worked with the Michigan Department of Transportation (who owns and controls Main Street/M-83) to create and adopt an Access Management Plan for the corridor. As part of the plan, MDOT hired a consultant to review existing and forecasted traffic on Main Street to see if there were improvements that could be made.

In reviewing the existing and projected vehicle and pedestrian traffic, the traffic engineers suggested that a portion of South Main Street, from approximately Grauer Drive south to Weiss Street, could be improved if it were converted to a three-lane cross section. On Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at 5:30 pm, the City of Frankenmuth will host a meeting at the City Township Governmental Center, 240 W. Geneseee, to hear public comment on such a change.
