Don’t forget that the M1 Light Rail public hearings are tomorrow, Saturday February 12th.
There are two meeting options. The first is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with a presentation at 11:30 a.m.; the second from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. with a presentation at 4:30 p.m. The public may participate in one or both events, which will be held at the Main Detroit Public Library, Lower Level Auditorium, 5201 Woodward Avenue, Detroit, MI 48202.
Note that earlier information showed the second meeting starting at 6 p.m. That was incorrect! It begins at 4 p.m.
As we’ve said before, this is a great opportunity to talk about the importance of this project positively impacting bicycling in Detroit. That means improving conditions for bicyclists using the train, riding to the transit stops, riding on Woodward, and riding across Woodward. This is an opportunity to make Woodward a Complete Street.
And here is a video from WXYZ’s Detroit 20/20 project which provides more information on the project as well as a discussion on its potential extension into Oakland County.
