It makes sense. The road doesn't carry THAT much traffic, and extra lanes work against the purpose of ripping out I-375 to begin with. It sounds like MDOT is genuinely trying to not steamroll its will over that of the locals, which is a positive step forward.


How many wide boulevards are already radiating out of downtown Detroit already (Michigan Ave, Grand River, Woodward,...)?   Turning the former I-375 from a freeway to a 4-lane boulevard into town should be fine if they just keep parking and bus stops off the actual Boulevard in order to maintain clear-flowing traffic while keeping the lights synched for limited stop and go traffic.

If someone is in such a hurry to leave town from Jefferson Avenue @ the Tunnel.  The Lodge is still available...

You're not going to have the signals synched anywhere when there's one every block.
