Transformation of Detroit’s Dequindre Cut Greenway

By Rod Arroyo, Photographer

Yesterday I attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Dequindre Cut extension in Detroit’s Eastern Market District. This former rail line extending to/from the Detroit Riverfront has been transformed into a linear greenway that now connects the Riverfront to Eastern Market. I am a frequent visitor to the Dequindre Cut, and the continued investment into this non-motorized pathway is paying dividends to people and local business in Detroit.

Below I share some of my photos from the ceremony and from previous visits. The warm weather is approaching, so it’s a great time to visit the Dequindre Cut.
