If you love the Dequindre Cut, you might like this development.

Two new “Dequindre Cut” style greenways will be built along the East Riverfront to connect east side residents to the RiverWalk.

The information was revealed at a presentation Wednesday night where the city of Detroit and the Riverfront Conservancy talked about plans for the future of the East Riverfront.

Let’s break it down. Below is a map of the locations of the two future paths, designed to connect the riverfront to neighborhoods on the inside of Jefferson.

The Beltline Greenway, located between Belleview and Beaufait, will connect from Kercheval Street to the Detroit River.

Construction on that project will begin in the spring of 2018.

The Joseph Campau Greenway, which already runs from the Detroit River to Vernor, will receive new lighting, furnishings, paving and landscaping.

It’s in place but needs upgrades to take it to the next level. Those improvements are planned to start in the spring of 2019.

This is part of a stream of stories around the plans revealed for Detroit’s riverfront. Learn more at the links below:
