Dearborn Healthy Streets.

Slow Shared Spaces for Health

Dearborn Healthy Streets 2022!

Starting May 6th, on and near Riverside, Akron, Wilson, Diversey, and Penn, and - new this year- Morley, you will notice signage for slowed and shared streets.
The goal of DHS is to create slower and safer streets to make it easier for local residents (living on or near these streets) to engage in healthy outdoor activity

Overview
Dearborn Healthy Streets Program

In 2021 Healthy Dearborn proposed a program to adapt some city streets to become “Slow and Shared Streets” to promote healthy lifestyles. This program is intended to provide a community learning opportunity for longer term transportation planning to advance multimodal transportation in Dearborn and make it easier for people to incorporate activity into daily living. We're excited to be bring this project back for 2022 even better.

What are Dearborn Healthy Streets?

Dearborn Healthy Streets are slow and shared transportation spaces to help all residents find safe, healthy ways to get outside, recreate, exercise and access essential services by providing greater access to public transportation rights of way. Slow and shared streets programs emerged as a nationwide trend during the COVID-19 pandemic which emphasizes the need for physical distancing and healthy lifestyles.

New Signage For 2022

New "Local Traffic Only" barricades will be posted on each end and/or major intersections on each street location. Barrels and/or a-frames will have "Slow Down" signage and will be posted at every other intersection along all the included streets.
