B2B Trail Update - Chelsea-Stockbridge Corridor Consumers Energy contractors have started clearing trees for the 55-mile Mid Michigan Pipeline Project within the right-of-way through Pinckney State Park. Currently, contractors are working on the east side of M-52 just south of the American Cell Tower. Later this spring, east of the M52 pedestrian tunnel, the Border to Border Trail will be temporarily rerouted due to the pipeline installation work. The temporary concrete pathway will be in place through late fall, when contractors will restore the trail to its current alignment. Consumers Power is funding this project, as well as some restorative landscaping. In the upcoming days, we expect that informational signs will be installed at each road crossing and the bike path crossings. Updates will be provided as they are received.

Strava Raises Prices But Can’t Tell You How Much It Costs Anymore

JANUARY 13, 2023 by DC Rainmaker Sports Technology News And Reviews

Some days, I just can’t decide if Strava tries hard to hurt their reputation, or, if it just comes naturally. Today, however, I’m left flabbergasted.

When I started writing this post, I thought I had it all figured out. And then each time I dug further, the rabbit hole deepened, and the absurdity of it expanded. So, I’m going to attempt to unravel this, but realistically, this ball of spaghetti is such a mess that I don’t even think Strava knows what they’re doing at this point.

The Jackson County Department of Transportation will close Green Road from approximately 3,000 feet east of Hideway Lane to Loveland Road on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, for approximately one year.
Aggregate Industries currently operates an aggregate mining operation on both sides of this section of Green Road. The County entered into an agreement with Aggregate Industries that allows for mining gravel under the existing road. Aggregate Industries will reconstruct the road and reopen it within one year of the road closure, at no cost to the County. Additionally, Aggregate Industries will compensate the County for all gravel removed from the Green Road right-of-way.

Green Road from Clear Lake Road to the point of closure will remain open to traffic. The closed section of the road will not be accessible to the public until early 2022. No detour will be posted and motorists should seek an alternative route.

Next year, it'll be a little easier to be a cyclist in Livonia.

In partnership with St. Mary Mercy Hospital and Healthy Livonia, the city plans to build a biking path or lane along Stark Road. The planned pathway would stretch between the Stark Road recreation area, which includes Ford Field, and would lead into Hines Parkway.

Once on the Hines trail, cyclists can head into Northville, Westland, Plymouth or Dearborn Heights.

“I think Hines is a pretty popular area and something we want to link up to in our regional trail network," said Ted Davis, the city's parks and recreation superintendent.

Unlike some of the city's popular park trails, like those at Rotary Park or Clements Circle, the Stark Road pathway would connect cyclists to a larger trail network. The project is park of the city's Bike and Walk Plan, which is meant to foster more non-motor travel throughout the city.
