Draft plans in place for 5 traffic corridors


TRAVERSE CITY — Traverse City is seeking public comment on plans to improve five traffic corridors.

City Planning Director Russ Soyring said draft plans are in place for improvements to the five corridors: Garfield Avenue, Eighth Street, Fourteenth Street, East Front Street and West Front Street. The draft plans will be presented Oct. 17 from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Traverse Area District Library on Woodmere Avenue.

Draft plans stem from an eight-month study and community workshop. City officials want public comment to help finalize them.

"The overall goal of the project is to find out what we can do to make these streets better, for residents, for businesses and for all those who use them to get around, whether by car, bike or foot," said Elizabeth Whelan, who serves on a steering committee examining the corridors.
