Oh and if you haven't heard, M-1 Rail announced that they are starting construction July 28! Go to their community meetings to learn more about construction plans and more:
- This evening, July 2, doors at 5:30, meeting 6-8pm
- at the Madison, 1555 Broadway, downtown Detroit
- Next Wednesday, July 9, doors 5:30, meeting 6-8pm
- at the MSU Detroit Center, 3408 Woodward, Detroit
We may have a little short-term construction pain, but some great long-term community, economic and transit development gain!
Thanks and have a great holiday weekend!!
