Joe Louis Greenway Advisory Council

Construction of the full 31.5 miles of the Joe Louis Greenway will be a lengthy process, which will take multiple years to complete. The Greenway will be built in phases, outlined in the Framework Plan. In early 2020 the City of Detroit will finalize the Framework Plan which will include recommendations for land use and zoning, green infrastructure, connections to public assets such as parks, wayfinding, and thoughtful intersection with local and regional multi-modal transportation routes such as the Iron Belle Trail, DDOT and SMART bus networks, and the new Gordie Howe Bridge.
