M1 Rail has finally set a date. Construction on the 3.3-mile streetcar system is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 28. According to a press release, Woodward Avenue will be completely closed from Adams to Campus Martius for roughly 120 days. Despite the project's sluggish pace and a setback in funding, M1 still predicts the $160M system will be up and running by late 2016.
