Dequindre Cut Greenway Project

The Dequindre Cut Greenway is a non-motorized "rails to trails" project extending from Woodbridge north to Gratiot Avenue.     
 
Phase I, constructed within the abandoned Grand Trunk Railroad right of way (map), was officially opened in May of 2009.  The 1.3 mile, $3 million project was funded by grants from the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) and the EDC.Thebicycle and pedestrian paths are open to the general public.  The Greenway also includes complete site lighting, benches, security features and landscapes.
 
The Dequindre Trail Extension,  which opened June  2010, connects the first section of the Dequindre Cut from Woodbridge Street south to Atwater Street near Milliken State Park and the RiverWalk.
 
Further north, beginning conceptual plans are underway for phase II of the Dequindre Cut, which would extend the pathway north from Gratiot Avenue to Mack Avenue. The Cut is better experienced in person.
