ROYAL OAK, Mich. -

A $1.9 million project will begin this month in Royal Oak to improve the streetscape along 11 Mile Road.

Plans include new ornamental street lights, wider sidewalks, push-button activated pedestrian crossings, new drainage gutters, ramps compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and more.

The changes are designed to make the area more walkable, increase visibility for businesses and set the table for redevelopment.

The project will be focused between Troy Street and Campbell Road. Work will begin May 13 and is expected to wrap up this fall.
