Leaf Pickup

Leaf pickup begins on October 26.

The City will be using a zone system for leaf pickup this year. There will be 5 zones, and leaves will be collected from each zone at least 3 times. At the beginning of each week certain zones will be scheduled for pickup. If all leaves are picked up from the scheduled zones before the end of the week, our contractor may move on to pick up leaves from other zones in the City. Don't worry that you will miss a leaf pickup if that happens - the contractors will be back the next week to pick up the scheduled zones.

This space will be updated to indicate which zone is currently being picked up. It is very likely that fall weather will intervene and require adjustments to the schedule at some point during leaf pickup. If that is the case, any updates or changes to the schedule will be posted here.


Zone 1: Maplefield, Oakdale, Woodside Park, Kenberton, Millington, Poplar Park
Zone 2: Kensington, Devonshire, Wellesley, Amherst, Indiana (N of Amherst)
Zone 3: Elm Park, Norwich, Oakland Park, Hanover
Zone 4: Maywood, Sylvan, Fairwood, Woodward Heights, Bermuda, Indiana (S of Amherst)

Week of November 2: Zones 4 & 5
Week of November 9: Zones 1, 2 & 3

Woodward Avenue Test Study

The City of Pleasant Ridge is conducting a capacity study on Main Street between Woodward and I-696, and on the eastbound I-696 Service Drive between Woodward and Main Street. The purpose of this test is to determine if overcapacity exists on the existing streets, and if traffic can be accommodated with potential lane reductions. The study will run from September 28 through October 19.

These tests are the first step towards implementing the short-term recommendations of the Woodward/696 Complete Streets Study. The purpose of that study is to improve conditions for pedestrians and bicyclists at the Woodward/Main Street/696 intersection. Woodward carries 45,000-50,000 cars per day south of 696. Woodward has 8 travel lanes south of the underpass to accommodate these cars, but that expands to 14 travel lanes at the Woodward/Main/696 intersection. This makes it likely that some lanes can be reduced without negatively impacting vehicle flow. This study will test if that is the case. Pleasant Ridge will provide data to MDOT on the function of the intersection during the study which will be the basis for decisions in the future.

If these tests indicate that lanes can be removed without unduly impacting traffic flow, the City will work with MDOT to find permanent ways to reduce travel lanes in these areas. Lane reductions may be used to shorten the amount of time it takes a pedestrian to cross the street, to calm traffic, and to improve the overall appearance and function of the Woodward/Main Street/696 intersection as a place.
