After the September groundbreaking celebration for the Dequindre Cut North extension, crews immediately began working on site preparation. Clearing of overgrowth and debris is now complete and relocation of underground utilities is underway.
Once the half-mile greenway extension from Gratiot Avenue to Mack Avenue is complete, the Dequindre Cut will link to other greenways under development and connect users to Midtown and to Hamtramck. Upgrades to this area include the reconstruction of the Wilkins, Adelaide and Division street bridges and the removal of the bridge over Alfred Street. A ramp from the Dequindre Cut to Wilkins Street will lead to a small plaza with seating and bike parking.
Construction is scheduled for completion by Spring, 2015.
