Thank you Supporter for joining more than 200 others from across the state in calling for more investment in Michigan transportation.
We're definitely getting attention and can't stop now!
This is our last chance! If the legislature doesn't act in the next three days, before they leave for summer recess, this opportunity will likely be lost. So keep up the calls and emails:
Send another message to your legislators TODAY!
Then urge your friends, neighbors, co-workers, family, congregations and others to contact their legislators too.
We have an extraordinary chance this week for a major transportation funding fix, if we can convince legislators that voters are willing to pay a little more to improve our entire transportation system.
Your help has made a big difference in keeping this issue high on the legislative agenda - together we can push it over the top for a big win!
Act now! Thanks!!
Another big chance for big change:
MDOT Considers Major Change for I-375 and Wants Your Opinion
I-375 is a short stretch of throughway that connects I-75 with the Ren Cen, and in the process cuts downtown off from the east Riverfront and Eastern Market immediately to its east. It is quite old and needs to either be completely rebuilt or perhaps torn down and recreated in a whole new way.
Six options have been proposed for how to address I-375 and some of them are really exciting! Please review these options and share your thoughts!
Come to a public open house this Thursday, June 12 between 2pm and 8pm in Shed 5 of Eastern Market, located at 2934 Russell Street in Detroit.
There will be exhibits for your review, staff on hand to talk with, and opportunities to provide feedback on each alternative. Brief overview presentations will be conducted at 2pm, 4pm, and 6pm. Eastern Market is handicapped accessible with available parking surrounding the facility. Anyone requiring special accommodations should contact Will Tamminga at 313-237-4608. Everyone is invited and encouraged to participate.
More information can be found at http://I375Detroit.com. Sign up for future notices and submit comments at I375Detroit@DEGC.org.
Don't miss your change to be a part of this exciting reimaging of Detroit area transportation!
