Michigan Avenue Corridor and Study Area
The Michigan Avenue Corridor extends about 40 miles between downtown Detroit and downtown Ann Arbor. It generally follows Michigan Avenue (US-12) from downtown Detroit to downtown Ypsilanti, but from there the Corridor extends west to downtown Ann Arbor, generally along Washtenaw Avenue (M-17). The Corridor also connects south from Michigan Avenue to Metro Airport, generally along Merriman Road. The Study Area includes land within one mile of the Corridor.
