Huron/I-94 Non-motorized Crossing 

Huron/I-94 Non-motorized improvement update - WATS is managing planning efforts to design a non-motorized crossing on Huron Street over I-94 as part of Washtenaw County’s HUD Sustainable Communities grant.  WATS is working with Washtenaw County, MDOT, and stakeholders in Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti Township to:

  • identify feasible crossing alternatives at Huron over I-94

  • select a preferred crossing alternative to present for local acceptance

  • complete traffic modeling of any interchange reconfigurations

  • begin engineering work necessary to construct non-motorized improvements

Public participation opportunities will be held in late summer to review the feasible crossing alternatives. Stay tuned to for updates.
