5/8/16: MDOT Trailblazer / 1967 Detroit

Last Updated by American Black Journal Editor on

We celebrate the trailblazing achievements of MDOT’s Kimberly Avery, the Department's first African-American female Southwest Region Engineer. We talk about her career, job responsibilities, and diversity in the industry. Plus, details on two major projects that are taking a look back at the 1967 Detroit rebellion and how far the City has come nearly 50 years later.
