Logos Mobility WorkshopsAdvanced vehicle technologies and new mobility services will have profound impacts on transportation systems and beyond. Communities across Michigan are seeking resources and information regarding the future of transportation. To help Michigan communities prepare for tomorrow’s mobility, the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) is conducting a series of regional workshops, with support from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC).

In April, CAR will conduct workshops in four locations across Michigan to share its research on the potential implications, challenges, and benefits of connected and automated vehicle technologies and new mobility services (e.g., carsharing, ridehailing, bikesharing, etc.) for local communities and organizations, and to obtain feedback from workshop participants.

Road Work AheadPreliminary work has begun for a reconstruction project on N Harris, however construction won't begin until 2018. The project will run from Michigan Ave north to Holmes Rd and will also replace the water main.

A public meeting is forthcoming for early summer 2017, but has not been scheduled yet. For now, the WCRC is planning for one lane each way with center turn lane, a 3 foot bike lane. Measurements and design are being done in consideration of sidewalk work as well.

Bidding for the work is targeted to take place in December 2017 at this time.
