The City of Oak Park's Nine Mile Redesign is a grant-funded public improvement project that is bringing multiple new amenities to Nine Mile Rd., including a road diet, bike lanes, more parking, pocket parks, and a linear park. It is aimed at creating a vibrant streetscape, facilitating a more robust community culture, and increasing business growth for the benefit of residents of all ages.
