ETROIT (AP) — Officials are expected to announce and celebrate the start of the final development phase of Detroit’s east riverfront.
Mayor Dave Bing, Gov. Rick Snyder and U.S. Sen. Carl Levin are slated to attend this morning’s announcement by the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy at Mt. Elliott Park.
The centerpiece of development efforts has been the Detroit RiverWalk, a 5-mile-long promenade popular with walkers, runners and bicyclists. The William G. Milliken State Park & Harbor located along the Detroit River near downtown also is an attraction.
