About this grant

This grant to the City of Flint will support the transformation of Harrison Street in downtown Flint into a complete street that supports multiple modes of transportation. A new roadway design will reduce the number of lanes dedicated to vehicular traffic and create a two-way bicycle lane that is protected by pedestrian improvements, attractive landscape elements, and on-street parking. In addition to improving the function and aesthetics of the street and enhancing the vibrancy of the new Health and Wellness District, the design is intended to slow vehicular traffic and enhance pedestrian safety, especially in the high pedestrian traffic areas near the University of Michigan-Flint. The project will also help connect downtown Flint with existing and planned segments of Flint’s growing bicycle trail system.
