Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced an initiative to develop a first-of-its-kind corridor for connected and autonomous vehicles in Southeast Michigan.
Govenor Whitmer along with officials from the state of Michigan’s Office of Future Mobility and Electrification (OFME), the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO) and the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) announced an initiative to develop a first-of-its-kind corridor for connected and autonomous vehicles in Southeast Michigan.
A key goal of the project will be to design the corridor with a focus on closing long-standing gaps in access to transit and transportation across the region.
Cavnue, a subsidiary of Sidewalk Infrastructure Partners (SIP) with a focus on building the future of roads, has been selected by the state to serve as Master Developer of the corridor project. This public-private partnership will explore the opportunity and viability of this project working with state and local partners, stakeholders, and communities across the corridor from Detroit to Ann Arbor.
The announcement was available via livestream due to COVID-19 social gathering guidelines and can be viewed through a recording at the top of this page.
