Detroit's Dequindre Cut pathway really, truly opening in May

If you thought the Dequindre Cut was officially open, no one could blame you. After all, people started walking, biking and jogging the trailway last summer. But finishing touches, including construction on the Antietam bridge that goes over the depressed former rail line, held up an actual formal opening.

Well, the time is nearing, and the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy will be hosting a blowout grand opening for the Cut on May 14.

Mark your calendars -- planning is ongoing for the day's festivities, but expect refreshments, music, bikes, and more.

In the meantime, whet your appetite with these photos and articles:
