HWPI: B2B Trail Construction Updates

From Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative 

M-52 Tunnel Project and Trail – The M-52 tunnel has been installed and the M-52 road has been repaved! In June and early July construction will continue on the tunnel facade, interior and approach. Paving of the connecting trail is anticipated in June. Thank you for your patience during construction!

Lyndon Township Trailhead – Contractors have finished 90% of the stone base on the trailhead in preparation for paving in mid June. The trailhead is estimated to be completed in mid July.

Dexter-Huron Metropark to Zeeb Road – This segment is open and has been enjoyed by many people during the COVID-19 ‘stay at home’ period. Over the coming weeks we will complete minor restoration elements of the trail.

Zeeb Road to West Delhi Trail Segment (Bridge over the Huron River) – Plans are being finalized for this segment. When permits are issued from Amtrak and EGLE (formally MDEQ) and plans are approved by MDOT, the project will be bid out. A fall bid letting would mean that construction could begin in 2021.

West Delhi thru East Delhi Trail Segment – Plans for this trail segment are being finalized. The County anticipates letting this project out to bid later the summer, with construction starting this fall and continuing into 2021. Completion is anticipated by mid summer of 2021.

The Grove Road and Frog Island Trail Segments – Work on these projects in the City of Ypsilanti will begin in early June and continue through late July or early August.

The North Grove Road and North Hydro Park Trail Segment – Construction on these two Ypsilanti Township trail segments is scheduled to get started in mid to late July, and is anticipated for completion by early September.
