M-1 Light Rail
A timeline has been set for construction on Detroit’s $140 million light rail project.
A failure to win further federal support could require a redesign of the 3.3-mile project and a scaling back of some elements.
A development agency has awarded incentives to further work on Detroit’s light-rail project and tear down The Joe.
“M-1 chose to begin negotiations with another contractor to avoid being subjected to public criticism. So now, many of the jobs and revenues are going to out-of-state contractors instead of staying in state.”
The city of Detroit is backtracking on an earlier decision to deny all patio permits for businesses along the M-1 light rail project route.
