Paving the Way

Given its location at the international border crossing and port of entry, Southwest Detroit is the site of major transportation infrastructure investment. The largest by far is the multi-billion dollar International Bridge.

Large infrastructure improvements generate regional economic health. However, host communities, particularly those with a concentration of low-income residents often bear the negative consequences of such projects, such as relocation, increased traffic, noise, air pollution, and a loss of neighborhood identity.

The SDBA is partnering with WDBA, community organizations, businesses, and residents to maximize jobs and environmental improvements as well as other community benefits when infrastructure investments occurs.
