Detroit — Work has begun on the final phase of a 3 ½-mile urban greenway in Midtown Detroit.

Midtown Detroit Inc. says the Midtown Loop Greenway will connect places such as Wayne State University and the Detroit Medical Center with greenway initiatives in other neighborhoods.

The final phase of construction includes adding bicycle lanes to link Midtown to the Detroit Riverfront, and completing a walkway with colored and stained sidewalks and amenities such as bike racks and benches.

Construction on the $15 million project began in 2010 and is expected to be finished by late summer or early fall of next year.
