[ARCHIVED] New E-CityHall Topic Available on Ashman/Rodd Conversion

May 2, 2023 – Should Ashman and Rodd Streets be two-way (again)? A new input topic on the City of Midland’s online public engagement platform explores this potential conversion project in more detail – and gives residents and street network users the opportunity to share their for input for consideration in the decision-making process. 

Visitors to the blog-style topic at will be presented with information about a potential conversion, broken down into several focus areas: Traffic flow, traffic safety, economic development, City service impacts, other service impacts, and non-motorized transportation. After reviewing the information provided in each focus area, participants can comment their feedback and share ideas or concerns. Participants will not be asked to “vote” on the project and will not be required to answer any questions related to the focus area.

 Input collected from this topic and from public open houses in April will be shared with City staff and the Midland City Council to assist in decision making regarding a two-way conversion of Ashman and Rodd and, if a conversion is implemented, to design corridors that incorporate this feedback as much as possible. The deadline to participate in the online topic is Wednesday, May 10 at 7 a.m. 

Conversion of Ashman and Rodd Streets from one-way to two-way traffic operations has been considered by the City of Midland for nearly two decades; however, design needs for the upcoming Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) Buttles and Indian Corridor Improvement Project provide an opportunity to implement potential changes now. A 2022 study conducted by OHM Advisors has determined that two-way traffic can be successfully implemented on both streets.
