Fast Facts:
- MDOT to engage the public in seeking ideas to transform the I-375 freeway in Detroit.
- Community and business leaders to be involved in a collaborative process to think broadly about possibilities.
- Focus on connectivity between rapidly developing entertainment, residential and retail districts.

April 29, 2013 -- Today, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and community and business leaders in Detroit began discussions about the future of the I-375 freeway. A meeting this morning of state officials and people with key interests along the I-375 corridor begins a process of community engagement with the goal of determining an innovative and collaborative plan that reflects the current and future transportation needs in the rapidly developing corridor.

"The conversations are just beginning and by no means has a final determination been reached," said State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle. "This must be a collaborative process with a mix of ideas and broad engagement from those invested in the area."

Among points of discussion will be how to accommodate the public's increasing demand for multiple modes of transportation and to connect the Riverfront, Greektown and the Eastern Market and Stadium districts.

"MDOT is committed to examining innovative ways to meet the demands of a 21st century transportation network and supporting local economic development," Steudle said.

Once a plan takes shape, the department will commission a feasibility study and examine environmental impacts.
