DETROIT (AP) - A multi-million dollar Tech Center at the northern end of Detroit’s light rail line is nearing completion.

The Detroit Free Press reports (https://on.freep.com/1VBCIzo ) the Penske Tech Center will function as the headquarters for M-1 Rail, the operating organization for the QLINE as the line is now called, as well as the maintenance and storage facility for streetcars.

An opening event is planned May 3 featuring its namesake Roger Penske, a racing team owner and businessman who is a member of M-1’s board.

Office staff members have already moved into the facility.

Officials have said light rail passenger service should begin in spring 2017. The $140 million project will extend 3.3 miles from Detroit’s downtown riverfront.
