Renovations to Macomb Community College’s South Campus 12 Mile Road façade to begin in April

Construction of crosswalk to impact 12 Mile Road traffic beginning early July
Renovations to improve student access into Macomb Community College’s South Campus from 12 Mile Road will begin in mid April. Initial site work on campus will not impact traffic on the road.
The construction on Macomb’s South Campus will provide improved pedestrian access from 12 Mile Road into the interior of the campus and its buildings. Currently, there is no pedestrian route from the bus stops on 12 Mile Road at the college into the campus proper.
In addition to creating an actual walkway for Macomb students who rely on bus transportation to attend classes, the renovations and site work will also create a direct link to a crosswalk that will be constructed to span 12 Mile Road. The crosswalk will connect Macomb’s South Campus and Wayne State University’s (WSU) new Advanced Technology Education (ATE) Center, which is located across from Macomb on the north side of 12 Mile Road and is scheduled to open August 2014. This will provide students who will be attending classes at both Macomb and WSU’s ATE Center with a viable pedestrian connection between the two partner institutions.
Beginning early July, the project will impact traffic on 12 Mile Road through single lane closures east- and westbound as the crosswalk is constructed. To enhance the safety of students walking between Macomb and WSU’s ATE Center, the addition of the crosswalk will also include installation of a traffic signal as well as a median between opposing traffic lanes. This work is scheduled to conclude by mid August.
