Communities for a Better Rail Alternative is a coalition of almost 30
community, religious, and environmental organizations in SW Detroit and
South Dearborn formed to fight MDOT's proposed Detroit Intermodal Freight
Terminal (DIFT) in Junction Yard in Southwest Detroit. This proposed
truck-rail terminal - which would bring 16,000 trucks per day to the site -
would have profound environmental, health, social and economic impacts on
neighborhoods in Southwest Detroit, and Southeast Dearborn. 

CBRA is working to develop a feasible alternative that does not result in
the destruction of homes and businesses, and addresses community needs and
concerns about the impacts trucks on public health and neighborhood

Check out our new website, http://www.corktowndetroit.org/cbra
<http://www.corktowndetroit.org/cbra> . It has information about CBRA, media
coverage, and information about upcoming meetings and public hearings, as
well as links to MDOT's web sites, and the proposed DIFT project.
