Ridge Road Detail Project Map


1. Traffic Signal at Michigan Avenue and Beck: The new traffic signals at westbound Michigan Avenue and Beck Road will be energized on Monday, August 31. The signal will run on flashing mode for at least seven days before Wayne County changes the phasing to “stop-go” mode. While in flashing mode, the intersection will follow the existing stop conditions (stop signs at the crossover and on southbound Beck) so that drivers become accustomed to the new signals.

2. Traffic Signal at Ford/Ridge: Anticipated to be done this year.
