Work is continuing on the link between the harbor, Rivard Plaza, and the Dequindre Cut. I've posted a few photos from Sunday.

Sorry about that.

It'll be great to see the progress moving along this summer from the Diamond Jack's River Tours.

Anyone heard anything about any progress on the old engine shop for Detroit Drydock fronting Atwater across from Tri-Centennial.

The initial construction of Tri-Centennial Park's Phase II is expected to be completed by June. The second part, which includes the trail/RiverWalk extension, will be bid out at that time and hopefully completed by Fall.

The Dequindre Trail which connects the Cut to Tri-Centennial is expected to be completed by the end of summer. This is a DEGC/City of Detroit project.

Mark your calendars: The official Dequindre Cut grand opening ceremony is May 14th at 10am.

Where exactly is the grand opening going to take place? My guess is at the river end of the trail, but that's just a guess :-)

I don't know yet, but that would be my guess.

I was on in the cut today along with two walkers and two runners. Unfortunately I can't comment on progression as this was my first time.

East side was paved with biker and walker lanes. West side had "fragile grass area" whatever that means. Emergency phones, benches, and trash cans were set up sporadically as well.

Something needs to be done with the area after the trail finishes at the river end. Are there plans for that?

Yes. The Dequindre Cut ends at Woodbridge. The Dequindre *Trail* provides the connection to the river, from Woodbridge to Atwater. This missing trail segment should be done this year.
