Michigan Avenue and West Vernor Highway
Our proposed route will take participants past several iconic parks and green spaces, including Campus Martius Park, Roosevelt Park and Clark Park. Boyer Playfield, one of ten neighborhood parks selected by the City of Detroit to receive investment in 2016, is located on the western side of the route.
Dozens of shops, restaurants and businesses line Michigan Avenue and West Vernor Highway. From banks and coney dogs Downtown, to coffee, bikes and bagels in Corktown, along with tacos, bakeries, barbers and beauty parlors in Southwest Detroit, the route features a diverse range of neighborhood retail.
Concerned about navigating around the route? Several cross streets will remain open throughout the closure of Michigan and Vernor, as will all side streets and parallel roads. Wondering where to park? The Open Streets Detroit planning team will post a list of suggested parking along the route as the dates get closer.
