Share your feedback on the Buttles Street Road Diet Trial
In May 2018, the Midland City Council approved a 3-year lane reduction trial of the Buttles Street corridor from Jerome to State Street. This trial seeks to test if Buttles Street can operate as a two-lane road in this area. The overall vision for this project, if the trial proves successful, includes reducing Buttles Street to a two-lane roadway in an effort to improve pedestrian safety, reduce travel speeds, encourage economic development, and beautify the current space.
This survey has been created as a way for residents and corridor users to share their input on the current road diet trial, as well as to help City staff and the Midland City Council identify what the community feels are the most important elements of this corridor.
Before taking the survey, please watch the videos shown below to learn more about the road diet trial, its objectives, and the context for the study's implementation. Feedback collected through this survey will be shared with City staff and members of the Midland City Council and will also be available for viewing by the general public both during and after the survey period. For more information on this trial, please visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/roadstudy.
