E-M:/ Dearborn residents reject freight terminal

Enviro-Mich message from "Savoie, Kathryn" <KSavoie@accesscommunity.org>

On Monday night, about 200 South Dearborn residents attended a Dearborn City
Planning Commission public hearing about the Michigan Department of
Transportation's (MDOT) proposed Detroit Intermodal Freight Terminal (DIFT).
Resident angrily rejected MDOT's plans, which would increase intermodal
trucks in the area from 2,000 to 16,000 per day (according to MDOT
estimates) in an area already saturated with truck traffic. The hearing was
covered in an article in today's Detroit News, "South Dearborn residents
fight freight yard plan:"
