Woodward Heights Traffic Management Study

Woodward Heights is a half-mile street located in the City of Pleasant Ridge that has experienced increased traffic volumes, including truck traffic, in recent years. Woodward Heights has a residential character in Pleasant Ridge, which is at odds with the increase in traffic volume. This study seeks to engage residents and reach consensus on improvements and methods that can be implemented to mitigate traffic and improve quality of life for residents on the street.

The City has retained Toole Design to study traffic issues on Woodward Heights, and to generate recommendations to address those issues.
