The plan calls for improvements such as large center medians and buffered bike lanes.

Communities along the corridor are expected to soon begin making some of the smaller changes outlined in the plan, like connecting sections of sidewalk that currently have gaps between them.

To: ReImagine Washtenaw Joint Technical Committee Re: Corridor Improvement Study (ROW Study) Date: April 28, 2014 From: Nathan Voght, ReImagine Washtenaw Project Manager Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development
We are very pleased to release the final ReImagine Washtenaw Corridor Improvement Study, formerly
known as the “Right
-of-
Way” study.
This project was funded by the HUD Sustainable Communities Challenge Grant, which wraps up in January 2015. This work represents a big step forward for ReImagine Washtenaw in creating a coherent cross-section plan for the future of the corridor. The plan provides the clearest understanding of how to achieve a multi-modal street, where reasonable accommodations are provided for, not only vehicular travel, but also pedestrians and bicyclists. The study lays out a clear, dimensional plan for the future cross sections of each segment of the corridor. The plan calls for four, 11 ft. travel lanes and a middle left-turn lane (or median) throughout the entire length of the corridor. In addition, a continuous, eight (8) foot wide bike lane, including a three foot buffer, is planned as part of the future cross-section. Given the important role that public transit will play in the economic redevelopment strategy for the corridor, careful planning was undertaken to find appropriate locations for bus stops with enhanced
services and amenities, called “Super Transit Stops.” These stops will support continued improvements
to the transit service along the corridor, and are a necessary component to possible future Bus Rapid
Transit service along the corridor. It’s very exciting that TheRide has already budgeted for the
construction of at least one such enhanced transit stop in the near future! The validity of this study is advanced further by the clear understanding by all partners of the importance of land use changes that must also occur if the transportation goals are to be realized. Concurrent with this study, master plan and zoning ordinances are being updated to ensure future development advanced mixed-use, place-making, and walkable community goals for the corridor. With this study, a clear understanding of future right-of-way or access easements necessary to achieve a
more “complete street” in the future
 has now been achieved. In order to effectively and consistently
implement the plan, it’s critical that the Cities of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, and Townships of Pittsfield
and Ypsilanti adopt this plan in its entirety, in such a way that makes its implementation certain. We want to reiterate our commitment to supporting this regional planning initiative, and remain convinced of the vast potential for real transformation and the positive impact it will have on the region.
