“The City of Sterling Heights is home to the Golden Corridor, a stretch of roadway between M-53 and I-94 designated as “golden” because of its immense economic impact in Macomb County and Metro Detroit. The Golden Corridor stretches through Utica, Shelby Township, Sterling Heights, Clinton Township, Macomb Township and Mt. Clemens — and is home to world-class shopping, dining and retail as well as colleges, hospitals, a minor league baseball park, a major performing arts center and bustling industry. The Golden Corridor is recognized by the Detroit Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau as an area of note, as its commercial assets exceed $1 billion. Consumer spending data for the Golden Corridor reveals more than $2.6 billion is spent annually, with $720 million in restaurants, $400 million in home improvements and $215 million in entertainment alone. Approximately 100,000 vehicles travel the Golden Corridor every single day. M-59 is inarguably one of the largest economic hubs of Macomb County.” – source the City of Sterling Heights website.
