Significant progress on the half-mile extension of the Dequindre Cut has been made this fall.  All restoration work at the Division and Adelaide street bridges is complete and the Alfred Street bridge has been demolished. New structural supports for the Wilkins Street bridge are underway.

Along the extension, storm sewer piping has been installed, and most of all underground electrical for lighting and security cameras is complete.  A retaining wall surrounded by decorative stone that allows for easy drainage is in place.

Next spring, asphalt will be poured along the walkway, landscaping will be installed, and all accessories such as benches, waste receptacles and security call boxes will be placed. Once the project is complete, the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the entire two miles of the Dequindre Cut.
