Jefferson Avenue Remodel Underway

East Jefferson Avenue redesign will include landscaped islands and protected bike lanes.

A road construction that will add parking, bike lanes, and landscaped islands to the street is underway on Jefferson Avenue between Alter Road and Chalmers.

Jefferson East Incorporated, who is behind the project, is a non-profit group that spurs development.

Justin Fried is the Corridor Revitalization Director.  WDET’s Bre’Anna Tinsley spoke with him about the project.
