On November 12, 2015, MDOT hosted an Open House at the Northfield Township Hall to ask for opinions about the architecture, design, and landscaping of the US-23 Corridor project.

This was a poster session.  To explain and answer questions about the 34 poster sized renderings were an almost equal number of MDOT Engineers and Landscape Architects from MDOT's landscape architecture consultant, Parsons.

Below are links to images of the posters, captured by a handheld camera, in the order they were placed around the room. 

All the posters except the first are here.  Representatives of MDOT and Parsons promised to post the original graphics (as pdfs) on the MDOT website but they didn't provide a timeframe.  As of March 31, 2016, they are no where that I can find on MDOT's website.
