An example of some of the Vision Zero quick-build improvements coming for pedestrians and cyclists in Ann Arbor in 2022-23. ANN ARBOR, MI — Several street locations in Ann Arbor are going to see safety improvements for pedestrians and cyclists in the coming months.

City Council voted 9-2 this week to approve a $698,809 contract with P.K. Contracting LLC for maintenance of existing pavement markings throughout the city and implementation of new measures as part of the city’s Vision Zero goal to eliminate deaths and serious injuries on city streets.

The A2 Vision Zero Quick Build Project focuses on seven general locations within the city and involves deploying various types of pavement markings and bollards, including new green bike lanes through the busy intersections of Liberty Street/Stadium Boulevard, Dexter Avenue/Maple Road and Miller Avenue/Maple Road and yellow bump-out areas at some downtown intersections to give pedestrians an extra edge over cars.

The overall estimated cost of all the work to be done is $783,350, City Engineer Nick Hutchinson told council.

Work is expected to begin in late August and be complete by next June. There is an option to extend the contract for another one-year period to do more work.

Staff presented diagrams showing the quick-build improvements planned at each location. See them all here. An example of some of the Vision Zero quick-build improvements coming for pedestrians and cyclists in Ann Arbor […]
