The project will transform Mound Road into a user-friendly corridor that is safe for motorized vehicles, bikes and pedestrians.
Mound Road is internationally recognized as a hub for technological innovation. The Innovate Mound project will strengthen the region and enhance connectivity by incorporating state-of-the-art design and smart technology to create a 21st century multimodal corridor.
Mound Road is an economic powerhouse supporting more than 200,000 jobs in Macomb County and across the state. The partners in this project – Macomb County and the cities of Sterling Heights and Warren – are making an investment to create modern, efficient, reliable infrastructure to retain jobs today and sustain future economic growth.
