Dequindre Cut - North
Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Work progresses on the northward portion of the Dequindre Cut that will extend the well-traveled greenway from Gratiot Avenue to Mack Avenue. This will provide a safe and convenient link between the riverfront, Eastern Market and surrounding neighborhoods.
Currently, bridges at Adelaide and Division Streets are being reconstructed. The Division Street bridge structural steel is set, with concrete footings and pier walls poured. The placement of precast arches will follow in the coming weeks. A water main is being replaced at the Adelaide Street bridge and once that is completed, placement of concrete footings, pier walls and precast arches will follow.
Additionally, bridges at Wilkins Street and Alfred Street are being prepared for a summer reconstruction.
Once the project is complete, the Conservancy will be responsible for maintenance and operation of the beautiful two miles of greenway.
