Detroit officials have announced a $20 million effort to clean up one of the city’s most notorious pieces of vacant land. They say it's only phase 1 of a plan to clean up the site on Detroit’s east riverfront that once housed a Uniroyal tire factory, and other heavy industry that contaminated the land. For years, those industries fought with the city and amongst themselves over who was responsible for the clean-up.
