Detroit light rail project approaches groundbreaking

DETROIT (AP) — Officials say Detroit’s $140 million light passenger rail project is moving forward toward an expected summer groundbreaking.

Paul Childs, chief operating officer of the M-1 Rail project, offered an update on the plans recently to The Detroit News.

Officials haven’t said exactly when the groundbreaking will take place. Below-ground utility relocation began late last year for the 3.3-mile project.

The streetcar line is to start running along Detroit’s Woodward Avenue in 2016.
