DETROIT (AP) - A $2 million grant from the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation will help fund the design and pre-construction phases for uncompleted parts of a 26-mile recreational path through Detroit.

The bike and pedestrian Inner Circle Greenway connects neighborhoods and residents to parks, commercial corridors, the riverfront and downtown.

City officials say the pathway is meant to improve transit options for Detroit residents, especially those who don’t have vehicles and need access to jobs, services and civic amenities.

Studies, surveys and the community engagement process with residents living near the greenway are to start this fall and wrap up early next spring. The project is expected to finish by fall 2019.
