How the bridge will affect Delray residents
The New International Trade Crossing has taken a big step closer to becoming reality.
Recently, the U.S. State Department approved the project which will allow the creation of a second span across the Detroit River from Detroit to Windsor.
The residents, business owners, and civic leaders in the Delray neighborhood have been watching the progress of this project very closely.
Delray is where the bridge would be built - where traffic would flow - and where life will change.
Will the bridge bring good things to the southwest Detroit neighborhood and its residents, or will their quality of life be sacrificed for the economic benefits to Michigan?
Simone Sagovac is with the Southwest Detroit Community Benefits Coalition. Today, she told us how the new bridge will affect Delray residents and whether the two can exist.
Listen to the full interview above.
