I-375 Rebuild On Ice, Blake’s Cider Kerfuffle & Sterling Heights Wants Space Command HQ

Play episode

We’ve reported several times about the state’s plan to rebuild Interstate 375 as a grade-level boulevard complete with bike lanes, sidewalks, streetscaping and new buildable real estate. Now, Crain’s reports the plan has been inexplicably iced to at least 2027, unless Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan can convince officials not to delay it.

On today’s show, we also discuss Ferndale’s nifty new drive-through voting initiative, plus Sterling Heights’ bid to become the U.S. Space Command, overseeing the newly created Space Force.

Also, Blake’s Hard Cider in Armada is apologizing after notices spread across the Internet that it was hosting a rally for Lisa McClain, a local Republican running for an open seat in the U.S. House, in support of President Trump and police. The rally was set to feature both former Trump campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski and controversial former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke. Blake’s is a sponsor of Detroit City FC, whose supporters weren’t pleased.

That and the latest in coronavirus updates from the state, plus the spectre of COVID forces Major League Baseball to postpone two games, just after the Tigers (finally) kicked off their 2020 season.
