September 13, 2012 -- MDOT will add a designated bike lane on M-10 (Northwestern Highway) between 13 Mile and Inkster roads in Southfield, in accordance with the Complete Streets policy recently approved by the State Transportation Commission (STC). The bike lane will be included in an ongoing M-10 resurfacing project expected to be completed in October.

The Complete Streets policy requires road agencies to serve all legal users of the roadway, from trucks and cars to buses, bicyclists and pedestrians regardless of age or ability. Public Act 135 of 2010 required the STC to adopt a formal policy by August 2012. In urban planning and highway engineering, complete streets are roadways designed and operated to enable safe, attractive and comfortable access and travel for all users.

The painted bike lanes are intended to guide bicyclists, as well as advise drivers that they are sharing the road with nonmotorized users. As an alternative means of transportation, bike lanes not only provide a healthy lifestyle option but result in cost savings for users and are eco-friendly for the region.

Additional information on the Complete Streets policy can be found at the following link: www.michigan.gov/mdot/0,1607,7-151-9623_31969_57564---,00.html
