Oak Park Downtown Road and Intersection Improvements

The City of Oak Park, Michigan, having a population of just under 30,000 people, is an established bedroom community that sought to revitalize its core business area. Oak Park turned to OHM Advisors to assist with obtaining federal funding, design, and construction administration for this three-year project.


The project included aesthetic and pedestrian enhancements, along with the reconstruction of approximately 2 miles of five-lane roadway within Oak Park’s Central Business District and 2.5 miles of asphalt overlay. Four different funding sources were utilized, including Local Jobs Today and Surface Transportation Program - Urban. With more than 27,000 vehicles traveling these roads daily, careful planning and coordination were required to minimize traffic disruptions, maintain open dialog with the community about construction specifics, and respond immediately to any concerns. Public meetings provided a forum for information sharing prior to the start of the project.
