Four Things

  1. Narrow travel lanes to 10-feet, plus 1-foot gutter pan.
  2. Pedestrian HAWK signals at Rose, Hope, and Oak Streets.
  3. East side pedestrian crossing of Parkway at Division Street (only a west side crossing is proposed).
  4. Sidewalks on the south side of Grandview Parkway, between the new East Front Street (near Franklin/Railroad) intersection and Division Street.

Endgame

  1. A Letter of Understanding that MDOT wants the City to sign
  2. The possibility of hiring a third party to negotiate on behalf of the people of Traverse City.
