Logo MDOTMDOT and the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) are proposing to shift traffic on US-12 and Wiard Road from a one-way boulevard to a two-way configuration. The American Center for Mobility (ACM) proposes to create an all-weather, connected and automated vehicle test track facility on the site of the former Willow Run Assembly plant. Portions of the US-12 and Wiard Road right of way, freed up by the traffic shift, may be used for the ACM highway loop. On US-12, all traffic operations would shift from the current westbound lanes to the eastbound lanes, which would then carry two-way traffic near the former Willow Run Assembly plant.
