Detroit officials say construction is underway on a streetscape project designed to make a west side neighborhood into a vibrant hub for shops and restaurants.

Officials announced that the East Warren and Cadieux neighborhood is getting an $8.2 million makeover in order to improve the commercial corridor’s walkability and beauty.

Planning and Development Director Antione Bryant said the area between the Southfield Freeway and Mettatal Street will be slimmed down. There will be the addition of bike lanes, street lights and new sidewalks, as well.

In addition to the road work, the city will build parks and a parking plaza on a street nearby.

The parking plaza will be built on Courville Street and is expected to be completed later this year. The city officials said there will be enough parking for customers and will help avoid overwhelming the corridor with parking lots.

This streetscape project is part of the Strategic Neighborhood Fund that is focused on improving 10 neighborhoods across Detroit. So far, six other projects have been completed including, McNichols, Livernois, Bagley, Kercheval, Conant and Grand River.

It is estimated that the Warren streetscape project will be completed by May 2023.
