DETROIT (AP) – Details of a proposed light rail project along Woodward Avenue in Detroit will be presented during a neighborhood meeting at a church along the planned route.

City officials say in a release that residents also will answer questions Thursday evening about the Woodward Avenue Light Rail Transit Project at Mt. Olive Baptist Church. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.

Details about the rail’s three downtown design options also are expected to be discussed. Public comment ends Monday.

The $25 million project calls for a 3.4-mile rail line between the city’s downtown and Grand Boulevard in the New Center business district. It will be paid through federal stimulus dollars.

The grant covers the first phase of the project which eventually would stretch along Woodward to Detroit’s northern city limits.
