Washtenaw County's Most Dangerous Intersections For Auto Accidents

The Washtenaw Area Transportation Study has recently compiled a list of the County's most dangerous intersections based on MichiganState Police crash data. These intersections have very high volumes of traffic. Washtenaw County Road Commissioner, Roy Townsend, said that the study will help determine which intersections may need safety improvements. Additionally, Townsend said that with high volumes come delays. With delays people at these intersections take more chances and, thus, there are more auto accidents. The County Road Commission is continuing to evaluate these dangerous intersections for additions of safety features such as additional turn lanes, relocation of driveways and, in some instances, building roundabouts.

The transportation study used two factors to determine the ranking: total crashes at the intersection and the accident rate per million cars. The top ten are as follows:

  1. West Michigan and Capenter Roads (total crashes 113 / year & 2.7 per mill.).
  2. Washtenaw Avenue and Golfside Drive (total crashes 119 / year & 2.6 per mill.).
  3. Carpenter Road and Packard Road (total crashes 114 / year & 2.0 per mill.).
  4. Jackson Road and S. Zeeb Road (total crashes 78 / year & 2.1 per mill).
  5. Platt Road and Michigan Avenue (total crashes 78 / year & 1.9 per mill).
  6. Washtenaw Ave and N. Hewitt Road (total crashes 81 / year & 1.7 per mill).
  7. West Michigan and South Huron Street (total crashes 74 / year & 1.9 per mill).
  8. Washtenaw Ave and Carpenter Road (total crashes 135 / year & 1.6 per mill).
  9. Ann Arbor-Saline Rd. and Lohr Road (total crashes 57 / year & 2.3 per mill).
  10. West Michigan and S. Hamilton Street (total crashes 64 / year & 2.0 per mill).
