Dearborn is first out of the gate for developing a new Metro Detroit intermodal train station. This one not only services the community but connects visitors to The Henry Ford and Greenfield Village.
"The construction ceremony was held at Greenfield Village because a new entrance to the Henry Ford complex will allow train passengers easy access to the visitor attraction.
The money for the new train station was approved two years ago under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, but Congress did not sign off on the funding until August.
Dearborn will consolidate its two passenger rail stations into an intermodal station on Elm Street near South Brady in the west section of downtown. Construction has begun on Michigan Avenue near the Southfield Freeway."
