April 6, 2023 – Are Ashman and Rodd meant to be two-way (again)? Residents are invited to explore this unique opportunity to analyze the future of Midland’s street network during upcoming public open houses later this month.
At each open house, attendees can view sample design renderings, share their input, ask questions about impacts to their daily lives and City services, and learn more about transition plans if a conversion were to be implemented. Staff will also be on-hand to discuss how two-way streets provide potential positive impacts to economic development, traffic flow, and safety for both motorists and pedestrians.
Sessions will be held on the following dates:
- Tuesday, April 18: 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and 5 – 7 p.m. at the Midland Law Enforcement Center, 2727 Rodd Street
- Wednesday, April 19: 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and 5 – 7 p.m. at the Midland Law Enforcement Center, 2727 Rodd Street
- Thursday, April 20: 2 – 4 p.m. at the Northwood Idea Center, 102 E. Main Street
An online survey will be offered in early May on the City’s public engagement platform, E-CityHall, that will gather input on topics similar to those addressed at the open houses. To sign up for updates when the survey is open, please visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/ecityhall.
Potential conversion of Ashman and Rodd Streets to two-way vehicle traffic is being explored in conjunction with the Buttles Street Corridor Improvement Project. For more information on the potential conversion project on Ashman and Rodd, visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/ashmanrodd.
