Update: Construction Continues Along The B2B Trail

The Border to Border trail continues to move along – step by step.

The Huron-Waterloo Pathways Initiative reported this week more significant progress on building the B2B. You may have already seen the 2.6 mile trail segment beginning at the intersection of M52 and Werkner Roads to the Green Lake Campground that is almost complete.

Boardwalk construction is finished and progress paving toward the roundabout continues. In the meantime, we ask that you please stay off the trail for your safety. Look for a grand opening in October. Final design engineering has also begun on the trail segment along M52 from North Territorial to the Jackson County line.

On opposite end of Washtenaw County, trail activity has begun as well.

Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative (HWPI) volunteers are working with the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission’s (WCPARC) Border-to-Border Trail (B2B) team, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC), and other state and local government agencies to develop new non-motorized trail segments. With the support of the entire community, these trail segments will ultimately complete the B2B throughout Washtenaw County and beyond. The B2B is part of the Michigan Iron Belle Trail, a state-wide trail system. Check back often for trail project updates!

The completed B2B will feature The Huron River Greenway with eight themed bridges spanning the Huron River between Ann Arbor and Dexter, and The Huron Waterloo Loop, a continuous 44-mile pathway passing through the Waterloo and Pinckney State Recreational Areas and including a portion of the existing Lakelands Trail. By connecting and showcasing our communities, the HWPI hopes to encourage healthy and active lifestyles, while also promoting economic development.
