Detroit to announce blight removal plans for Delray neighborhood, area near planned bridge


DETROIT — Blight eradication efforts in Detroit are now including parts of a neighborhood near a planned commuter bridge linking Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, in Canada.

Mayor Mike Duggan and City Councilwoman Raquel Castaneda-Lopez are expected to give details Tuesday morning of stabilization efforts in Detroit's Delray community.

More than 30 dangerous buildings are to be razed and brush will be cleared from vacant land west of where officials hope to build the Gordie Howe International Bridge. Plans call for the $2.1 billion government span across the Detroit River to open in 2020.

Duggan has made fighting blight one of the city's priorities. His administration has demolished about 6,000 vacant houses.
