Lego Men Want Trains Down the Middle
Transport Michigan has found a way to entertain while enlightening people on the fine points of fixed-rail track alignment. As they explain on their blog post:
In the course of the Woodward Avenue Light Rail environmental review process, it's become clear that citizens of the Detroit region need more interpretation of the different transit alternatives at hand to make an informed choice, per their democratic prerogatives. The informational materials provided by the City and consultants didn't always state things in layman's terms, and even TransportMichigan's forthcoming posts on the subject aren't much more likely to be read by a mass audience than the 149-page Draft Environmental Impact Statement. How, then, to spread the word about the significant safety, speed, reliability, and equity implications of a little-mentioned detail of light rail line design?
