Community members can learn about how and when construction on Detroit's $140 million light rail project will affect the city's Midtown area Wayne State University.

An M-1 Rail construction update is set for 8 a.m. Tuesday at the Max M. Fisher Music Theater on Woodward Avenue. The public meeting is free.

Officials announced last week that Woodward will close from Adams Street to Campus Martius Park or about 128 days for work starting July 28.

About the project:

The 3.3-mile streetcar route will include 20 stations serving 12 locations and connect riders to key destinations along Woodward Avenue. The streetcar will serve curb-side stations for nearly the entire length of the route, transitioning to center-running at the north and south ends of the system.
