It is always wonderful when the streets of Michigan are getting fixed and the city of Detroit is coming back to life.

The upgrades and changes remind people that Detroit is not filled with recurring crime because it can sparkle at times.

Just recently it was announced that between Ferndale and Detroit near the intersection of Woodward they will be doing some upgrades to improve safety and conditions that people are under.

This project has been a long time coming, people are have requested changes but the finances were never there.

An article from Fox 2 News called "Big changes are coming to the Woodward-8 Mile intersection, to both the walls and the people that live there" by Charlie Langton and Jack Nissen elaborated on the new plans.

Charlie Langton and Jack Nissen stated "What began as an attempt at beautifying the area has morphed into a two-pronged effort that targets both the urban design of the major infrastructure and the human care angle of those that use the area to panhandle and take shelter.

That includes people like William McKenney, who has lived under the bridge for 11 years. "Sorry to bring you into my home. Yes, this is where I sleep now," he said.

McKenney panhandles at the intersection so he can have a place to stay that night. He's picked the specific intersection because of how trafficked it is and how generous the drivers are that travel through the intersection."

This is a beautiful project that they have created and started, hopefully, Detroit and Ferndale will bring back the safety that both cities once had.
