Coolidge Complete Streets
The Coolidge Highway Complete Streets Initiative involves a 24-month evaluation period to determine if restriping Coolidge between 11 Mile and 12 Mile will improve traffic flow and make the road safer and friendlier for pedestrians and bicyclists. Restriping the road will reduce a travel lane in each direction while adding a continuous center turn lane along the one-mile stretch. Additional parking spaces and various streetscape improvements are included in the plan.
The Berkley City Council approved a 24-month study in January 2019 that incorporates a 12-month review of the eight safety metrics that are part of the Coolidge Road Right Sizing and Safety Corridor Metrics Matrix. The Berkley Downtown Development Authority is financing the project and expects to have the road restriped by May 1, 2019. More details about the project can be found on the DDA website at www.downtownberkley.com.
