LANSNG, MI — A broad coalition of citizens and faith and community leaders from Southwest Detroit at 10 a.m., Tuesday, May 25 will call on the Legislature to approve a plan to build a new Detroit River International Crossing, or DRIC, with community benefits legislation because it will create much-needed local Michigan jobs and bring new investments to the Delray and surrounding communities. The DRIC project is expected to create around 10,000 construction jobs, and many more additional ones through local investments and economic growth, as well as attract more than $1 billion in new investments to the community.
