Northfield Township Supervisor Mike Cicchella is apparently trying to gather support to put a US-23 expansion back in play, after the project was set aside when Granholm prioritized maintaining existing infrastructure:
“It has just become apparent that we need to work together to solve the US-23 corridor issue,’’ Cicchella told the gathering of about 15 people who included representatives from the Michigan Department of Transportation, the city of Ann Arbor, Pittsfield Township, two state representatives, the Washtenaw Area Transportation Study, the Washtenaw County Road Commission and others.
Before procedural constraints cut the scope to the Ann Arbor – Detroit corridor, the current regional commuter rail study extended up to Lansing; Ann Arbor Mayor John Hieftje said Thursday that providing a commuter transit option north from Ann Arbor was still a priority, especially because of the level of traffic on US-23. Such transit would probably use the Ann Arbor Railroad’s right-of-way within Ann Arbor, and either follow that line north or involve new track within the US-23 right-of-way.
