Two-Way Congested Streets Map – Eastside Detroit 1996

photo

As part of their course “Integrative Field Experience” prepared for the Detroit Eastside Community Collaborative, Kami Brown and Michael Ritz from the University of Michigan College of Architecture & Urban Planning created this map of street congestion on the east side in 1996.

Red = Congested two-way streets

Blue = Proposed one-way streets

It appears that St. Paul, Belveidere, and Dequindre were the most congested two-way streets at the time of the project.

I discovered this map, currently serving as a window shade, in the basement of St. Charles Catholic Church on Baldwin Street.
