Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative (HWPI) will be hosting two public meetings to provide updates on the Border-to-Border Trail. We will share information on current trail construction and engineering activities, future trail plans, and we will also be available to answer questions. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
The B2B was conceived by Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission (WCPRC) as a planned, non-motorized trail that begins in Ypsilanti and roughly follows the Huron River through the county to its exit in the northwest corner near Lyndon Township. When complete, it will connect Ann Arbor, Dexter, Chelsea, and Stockbridge. Approximately 25 miles of the B2B have been built and 21 miles are planned for construction.
Construction of this new B2B segment is part of a much larger plan to expand trails in the region. The B2B will ultimately connect to the Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park to the north, through both Stockbridge and near Pinckney. Governmental organizations from Livingston, Ingham, and Jackson Counties will undertake trail planning and construction activities to facilitate these connections.
HWPI works in partnership with WCPRC and many other governmental organizations to facilitate the development of non-motorized recreational pathways in Washtenaw and surrounding counties. HWPI facilitates trail development by encouraging community engagement and raising private sector money.
The informational meetings on the B2B will be held:
- Dexter Meeting: May 1, 2018 at 6:30 – 8:00 PM – Dexter District Library
- Chelsea Meeting: May 23, 2018 at 6:30 – 8:00 PM – Chelsea District Library
