Detroit's port plays key role in $2B economic export engine

Changing Gears, the collaborative journalism project between NPR stations across the Midwest, recently took a close look at the Great Lakes' growing shipping/exporting economy. Detroit's port was mentioned as one of the key cogs in that $2 billion industry.

Also, Changing Gears had an interesting report on how sometimes it makes more sense to remove freeways than rebuild them and listed a number of major metropolitan areas that have done it, including some in the Great Lakes. Metro Detroit wasn't mentioned, but it's an idea worth considering in a shrinking region.
