Detroit to Create Pedestrian, Bike Path Encircling the City

Good news for fans of green cities!

Detroit has reached a $4.3-million deal with Conrail to acquire a 7.5-mile railroad property that will complete a pedestrian and bike pathway encircling the City.

The acquisition fills the largest gap in the 26-mile Inner Circle Greenway, which joins neighborhoods across the metro area to the City’s parks, commercial areas, redesigned riverfront and bustling downtown.

“The Inner Circle Greenway is going to connect Detroiters from every corner of the city to some of our greatest resources,” said Mayor Mike Duggan.
