Link Detroit is a multi-modal project to enhance and connect existing greenways.  The project creates an accessible network of routes for cyclists and pedestrians between major destinations like Eastern Market, Hamtramck, Midtown, the Dequindre Cut and the Detroit Riverfront. 

The projects include: the extension of the Dequindre Cut from Gratiot to Mack Avenue; additional bike lanes from the end of the Dequindre Cut to Hamtramck; bridge improvements over the Dequindre Cut; additional bike lanes and a Midtown Loop path connection from Eastern Market to Midtown; and also bike lanes and streetscape enhancements on Russell Street in Eastern Market. The project is another demonstration of how collaboration can produce enhancements to improve the community environment.
