Detroit Finalizes Light Rail Route

The City of Detroit has finalized the route of a planned light rail line traveling down one the of the city's main corridors and linking to downtown.

"'This is a landmark moment in Detroit's journey to make light rail a reality in our city,' [Mayor Dave] Bing said in a release.

'With the support of FTA staff, we have reached this target faster than many believed was possible.'

The plan is a compromise between transit activists who wanted trains to run in the center of Woodward and businesses that wanted them closer to the curb. The new route will run in the center north of Grand Circus and nearer the curb through downtown."

Construction on the project is expected to begin next year.
