The Dequindre Cut trail is nearly complete -- just a few finishing touches left

Model D can't blame you for being anxious to walk or ride the Dequindre Cut if you've seen how great it looks from one of its three access points -- Woodbridge, Lafayette or Gratiot. But Will Tamminga of the Detroit Economic Growth Corp. says in six more weeks, the project will be complete, and that's when the agency will remove the fencing that currently blocks access.

"It looks like it's finished, but we still have landscaping, amenity packages, lights and a camera system," he says. "That's why we haven’t officially opened it." The amenities will include benches, trash receptacles and the like.

Tamminga says that a grand opening will be held once the trail is complete. Read more about the total vision for the Dequindre Cut here.
