A Revisioned 8th Street

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Thanks to the fabulous Envision 8th public engagement process of 2017 where residents of Traverse City decided on a beautiful and welcoming Eighth Street that we can be proud of for generations to come, a new and improved Eighth Street is coming in 2019. The final design is currently in the works.

We're super excited for this revisioned Eighth Street where we can conveniently and safely access neighborhoods, businesses, workplaces, parks, food markets, Boardman lake, the library, and public transit by foot, bike, or car.

Alongside our members and partners, we are committed to helping make this happen.

Our three Revisioned 8th Street priorities:

1. A walkable street. Wide, inviting sidewalks flanked by beautiful canopy trees. Raised and highly visible crosswalks at all intersections and mid-block crossings.

2. A bikeable street. Highlighted by a world-class cycle track that encourages bicycling for daily transportation all year round.

3. A safe street. A street design that discourages speeding and reduces the likelihood of serious injury for all road users. A street that provides dedicated space for all users of the street. Narrow vehicle travel lanes. Proper lighting for drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
While we are committed to building a stronger, better connected and more walk/bike friendly Eighth Street, we are only one piece of the puzzle.

We need YOUR voice. We need YOU to advocate for safe, convenient and accessible opportunities on Eighth Street. We need YOU to champion biking, walking and rolling year round.

We need YOU to take action.
