As part of the larger Marquette Plan, the project team needed to evaluate the existing transportation conditions and facilities and the relationship between the transportation corridors and nearby land uses.
A comprehensive transportation/land use plan was developed to help guide future investment along the corridors. The plan was the result of working closely with a large group of stakeholders including government agencies, transportation and environmental groups, economic development representatives, and civic/citizen groups. The plan offers recommendations to enhance the corridor’s image and increase pedestrian safety and connectivity. It also recommended developing cohesiveness along the corridors, managing a visitor center, and integrating green initiatives.
