Joe Louis Greenway trailhead opens near Detroit-Dearborn border
Another stretch of the city's growing network of trails and walkways opened Tuesday near the Dearborn border.
Why it matters: The West Warren Gateway is the first trailhead of the Joe Louis Greenway, a 27.5-mile pathway that will connect neighborhoods across the city to the riverfront and Dearborn, Hamtramck and Highland Park.
State of play: The $6 million gateway includes a 4-acre park, a pavilion, outdoor fitness equipment, a playground and parking.
- The trailhead area used to be prime dumping ground, officials said. About 23,000 tires have been removed since construction began in 2021.
Between the lines: So far, two miles of paved greenway are finished north of the trailhead near West Warren Avenue and Wyoming Avenue.
