Michigan’s first green street opened today with a ribbon cutting on Lake Street in Whitehall, Michigan.

Lake Street features bioswales, detention zones, native plants, filter strips, and permeable pavers all used to treat the storm water as many times as possible before it enters White Lake. An innovative project that illustrates Michigan’s strides towards a green and prosperous state.
