I-375 Alternatives Study Area

I-375 is an approximately one mile long urban freeway in Downtown Detroit that connects the I-75/Chrysler Freeway directly to Jefferson Avenue. The portion of this corridor between Gratiot Avenue and the riverfront is defined as the primary study area.  Five alternatives will be developed for this area, each undergoing analysis related to transportation, environmental and economic impact.   
 
The I-375 primary and secondary study areas are adjacent to significant developments:  the Lafayette neighborhoods, Eastern Market,  the Financial District, General Motors, Blue Cross -Blue Shield, Cobo Convention Center, Comerica Park, Ford Field, the Theatre district, Greektown Casino, Detroit – Windsor Tunnel, the East Riverfront’s  mixed-use development, DRFC’s RiverWalk and Milliken State Park.
 
The secondary study area includes the I-75/I-375 interchange, portions of Gratiot Avenue and the Gratiot Connector, and Jefferson Avenue between Washington Boulevard and Joseph Campau Street.  Two alternatives will be identified for each of these areas.
