Baldwin Road Corridor

Orion Township, MI

OVERVIEW

The Road Commission of Oakland County needed a solution to improve safety, access and traffic flow in the corridor along Baldwin Road. The revitalization project includes a 5-roundabout corridor that will be phased. Phase 1 will include the intersections of Baldwin and Judah and Gregory Roads.

SUMMARY

MTJ Roundabout Engineering, working with OHM, provided optimized final horizontal geometrics that addressed several issues:

  • Phi and view angles to the left
  • Speed control at pedestrian crossing locations
  • “Intersection angle”
  • Safety – allowing for landscaping and/orother screening design features within splitter islands

HIGHLIGHTS

  • 5-roundabout corridor
  • Improved pedestrian safety
  • Maintained business access
  • Revitalization process
