Eureka Road Corridor Project

The joint City of Taylor-Taylor Tax Increment Finance Authority-Wayne County $17M Eureka Road Corridor Project continues in earnest this spring. Phase 1 construction will complete the state-of-the-art “Gateway” signage/sculptures at the intersection of Telegraph and Eureka and in the median west of Allen Road, near the Canadian National Railroad viaduct. At Telegraph, the unique signage will be on both the north and south sides of the median. 

The main impetus of the huge project – enclosing the Frank & Poet Drain, which runs along Eureka Road from just east of Telegraph through the Southland Center property and into Southgate – will likely begin in 2022. The open drain offers eyesore, safety and flood-control problems. TIFA and the country will split the cost of the project. 

 The Eureka Road Corridor Improvement Plan will not only enhance the City’s main business and entertainment district, but mesh well with the new Fletcher Discovery Trail. The trail for non-motorized traffic connects the Midtown Goddard district to Heritage Park, Wayne County Community College District’s Downriver Campus, the new park being created near Pardee and Superior, and finally the Eureka Road and Telegraph Road areas.
