Woodward Avenue Rail Project Open House
A public open house to discuss the current status of the Woodward Avenue Rail Project will be held on Tuesday, August 21st from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the MSU Detroit Center, located at 3408 Woodward Avenue.
The open house is being hosted by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), in cooperation with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG).
Attendees will get details on the initiation of an environmental assessment on the proposed impacts of the project, which is a 3.3 mile streetcar line along Woodward Avenue between Downtown and the New Center Area.
Guests can stop by anytime during the open house.
The Woodward Avenue Light Rail Transit Project was to build a 9.3-mile light rail system beginning in downtown Detroit, extending northwest along Woodward Avenue and terminating near 8 Mile Road (M-102) in Detroit. Recently, the project partners decided to pursue a shorter version of the project that will still bring transit improvements to the Woodward Avenue Corridor, a 3.3-mile streetcar line along Woodward Avenue between Downtown and the New Center area. The project will serve 11 curbside stations for nearly the entire length of the route, transitioning to center-running at the north and south ends of the system.
