Construction has officially commenced on Link Detroit, the multi-million dollar system of interconnected of greenways and paths designed to make the city a more pedestrian/biker friendly place. There are several improvements scheduled to happen over the next year, but the most important of them all will be the northern extension of the Dequindre Cut, bringing the trail all the way to Eastern Market and beyond.
The extension will bring The Cut north by about a mile, running under the streets of Eastern Market before ending at street level at Mack Avenue. There are several other Link Detroit projects in the works. Details on those (and greater detail on The Cut) can be found at ModeShift. Construction is expected to be complete by November 2014.Read More
