DETROIT (AP) - Crews are preparing to install a curved track around Campus Martius in downtown Detroit as part of a $140 million light rail project.

Officials say work laying the track around the park is expected to start Monday and will not inhibit visitors from using Campus Martius.

M-1 Rail Chief Operating Officer Paul Childs says the 2015 construction schedule also will include rebuilding parts of Woodward Avenue and freeway overpasses around downtown.

The rail line is to start running in 2016. It will extend 3.3 miles from Detroit’s downtown riverfront to the New Center area.
