Dedicated road lanes from Detroit to Ann Arbor for autonomous vehicles announced

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer with other state and city leaders, like Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan all gathered outside the historic Michigan Central Station to talk about a new project.

The project will allow autonomous vehicles to travel from Detroit to Ann Arbor, the Michigan Connected Corridor.

“What may be the world’s most sophisticated roadway will be built here in Michigan,” Whitmer said.

“As the vehicles of the future are designed behind us, the roadway of the future is going to be built in front of us and look at Michigan Avenue it’s got the width that we need,” said Mayor Duggan.

The project will be take place along Michigan Ave and I-94, construction higher ups in the motor city have been looking forward to it for quite some time.
