Federal, Local Officials To Tout Detroit M-1 Rail

DETROIT (AP) — Federal, state and local officials will be in Detroit on Monday to celebrate a recently announced $12 million grant to help complete the city’s Woodward Avenue light rail line.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, Gov. Rick Snyder and Mayor Mike Duggan are among those expected to attend the so-called “Track Signing Ceremony.”

Others expected to attend Monday’s event at Grand Circus Park are U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow and M-1 Rail Board Chairman Roger Penske.

The 3.3-mile M-1 Rail project is designed to link downtown Detroit to the city’s New Center area. It’s scheduled for completion in 2016.
