No. 1 Dangerous Intersection: Airport and Boardman Roads, Blackman Township
This corner just south of I 94 gets the top spot on the list of the most dangerous intersections in Jackson County for car crashes in 2018. These types of intersections next to major freeway interchanges consistently show up in the top lists of high crash intersections every year.
No. 2 Dangerous Intersection: Andrew Ave/Boardman Road and N West Ave, Blackman Township
This intersection took the top spot last year on the list of the most dangerous intersections in Jackson County but saw a vast reduction in car crashes between 2017 and 2018, going from 42 car crashes to 27. A major retail presence and pass through to get to downtown Jackson contributes to heavy traffic volumes.
