Forums Planned To Discuss Woodward Light Rail

DETROIT (WWJ) – Some local groups want to make sure Detroiters clearly understand the proposed Woodward Light Rail project.   The D-DOT project is designed to improve transportation and economic development along the Woodward Corridor.

CeCe Grant, the Michigan Coordinator for Transportation for America, told WWJ Newsradio 950 they’re planning a series of public forums.

“We went and got neighborhood organizations and community associations — all the people that we don’t believe have been brought to the table, so far. We want to make sure that they have the same information that, perhaps, Peter Karmanos and the Ilitches have,” Grant said.

“Just talking to the community, making sure they’re properly educated and that they’re more informed of how this light rail is going to impact their community. There were a lot of questions about safety, access to jobs,” she said.

Wednesday night’s meeting runs between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. at Detroit Unity Temple on Second Avenue. The public has until March 14 to give their input.
