DETROIT, MI -- Construction on a major recreation/transportation infrastructure upgrade is set to begin along and in between a series of greenways in Detroit and Hamtramck.
Bicyclists and administrators at Eastern Market are preparing a celebration of the start of construction on Link Detroit, a project that will extend the Dequindre Cut, link it to the Midtown Loop and the Hamtramck Trail, make streetscape improvements at Eastern Market and address a series of deteriorating bridges.
A $10 million federal transportation grant announced last year will help pay for the project.
The Dequindre Cut, is a popular bike and pedestrian trail built over an abandoned rail line.
