Pieces Of Border-To-Border Trail Falling Into Place
The Washtenaw County Border-to-Border Trail is a step closer to completion, thanks to an easement obtained by the City of Ypsilanti from Fischer Honda on Michigan Avenue.
Ypsilanti City Planner Teresa Gillotti says the easement will clear the way for a pedestrian bridge to be built from Riverside Park to a corner of the Fischer Honda property, with an improved Michigan Avenue crossing then linking the trail to the Water Street re-development area.
Gillotti says the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission is covering the $38,000 cost of the easement.
Plans call for construction of the pedestrian bridge this summer.
