East Nine Mile Road Road Diet (2015)

Projects Overview

Project Summary:

East Nine Mile Road Road Diet

The City of Ferndale completed its East Nine Mile Road multi-modal and resurfacing project in Summer 2015. The project area was East Nine Mile from Woodward Avenue to West End Street and funded by the City of Ferndale Major Roads and Federal Highway SAFETEA 3R Grant. 

The project included a conversion of the road from 4 to 3 lanes, installing landscaped median buffers, improved pedestrian crossing points and ramps, bike lanes, road resurfacing, and some curb and drive apron replacements. Pedestrian push button crossings were installed at City Hall and Credit Union One areas. In the median of Woodward and Nine Mile, the outer Nine Mile lanes at the intersection was converted to right turns only, and the median lane converted from 3 to 2 lanes.
