Motor City wants rails
Can you believe it? Motor City actually wants to build a light rail. And I don't mean those cute Disney style people movers dashing around the waterfront. Thanks to TransportMichigan.org's Joel Batterman, we get a fantastic video describing the Woodward Light Rail Project proposal in Detroit. The video linked here, mixes Eminem, Legos, Environmental Impact Statement comment requests, and the two proposed alignment alternatives. Put together it's the funniest, wonkiest, and most education video I've see for a long time.
You owe it to yourself to watch at least one minute of the video. Even the Detroit Free Press newspaper considers it "Required Reading".
