DETROIT (AP) - Officials in Detroit are seeking ideas from the public on plans for Interstate 375 downtown.

The Downtown Detroit Development Authority, Detroit RiverFront Conservancy and state Transportation department have scheduled community meetings on possible changes to the mile-long business spur.

The freeway corridor connects I-75 to downtown.

The first meeting will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Feb. 13 at the Stroh River Place South Atrium. It’s the first of three public sessions on the seven-month I-375 Alternatives Study.

The primary study area extends along I-375 from Gratiot Avenue to Atwater Street.

Officials say the evaluation process is expected to address a number of issues including defining a vibrant entryway into downtown and the city’s east riverfront.
