Beautiful Greenway Built in 2 Years, 3 Months


Ann Arbor has an opportunity to create a Greenway in the Allen Creek corridor and recapture the rich history that existed at the turn of the century. This video shows what a determined city half way around the world did to create excitement and eliminate serious environmental problems for their citizens.

Byoung-Suk Kweon, Ph.D. joined the UofM Faculty in the Fall 2007, moving here from Texas A&M University. She provides a short introduction (click here) for this amazing project completed over a 2 year, 3 month time frame!
