"At the beginning of the process we wanted to incorporate all types of modes of transportation into what could potentially a boulevard, or do we leave it as a below-grade freeway?"

Rob Morosi, Michigan Department of Transportation.

Plans to redesign I-375 in downtown Detroit won’t be announced until early next year. The Michigan Department of Transportation, the Downtown Development Authority, and other agencies were supposed to make the top design options public this week. But MDOT spokesman Rob Morosi tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller they’ve decided to wait, because they want more input from others who have a stake in the project.
