Transportation Study

Western Wayne County Transportation Study

In 2006, the Canton Municipal Services Department participated on the Western Wayne Transportation Task Force. The task force serves as a forum for local communities and agencies to communicate goals and needs of transportation in Western Wayne county.

The task force commissioned a long-range transportation study to help maximize the efficiency of area roadways, promote a safe roadway system, develop transportation that minimizes negative impacts to the environment, plan roadway improvements, and develop transportation based on realistic financial resources.

TIGER 2015 Grant

Canton, on behalf of the Michigan Department of Transportation (M-DOT), recently applied for a Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant. If accepted, Ford Road (M-153) will be transformed from a five-lane paved road to a four-lane boulevard with a grassed center median (i.e. grey to green).
