As the year comes to a close, the HWPI Board of Directors and staff would like to express our sincere gratitude to our partners, donors and volunteers. We are thankful to each of you for contributing to the success of the B2B Trail in your own way. From spreading the word about the trail, to supporting HWPI financially, to serving beer at the Oberun, you have all helped build the B2B! We look forward to continued progress in 2020 and lots of time out on the trail. We wish you and your family happy holidays and a happy new year!
On October 24, 2019, Bridge 2 was set over the Huron River as a part of the new B2B Trail segment, Dexter-Huron Metropark to Zeeb Road.
A special thanks to the Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative, the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission, and the Washtenaw County Road Commission for providing time lapse video, aerial video and still photography.
The Grove Road #B2BTrail segment is officially open! Trail Partners, Rawsonville Elementary School staff and local families were in attendance celebrate the occasion with a ribbon cutting hosted by Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation Commission. It was a beautiful day to be on the B2B!
We are excited to announce the official opening of the Ypsilanti Grove Road segment of the B2B Trail! This half mile stretch of trail connects to Rawsonville Elementary, giving local children a safe path to walk to school. This trail segment also brings the B2B closer to reaching the border of Washtenaw and Wayne counties, with the long term goal of connecting to the scenic Lower Huron Metropark trail.
The Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation Commission will host a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:00 PM on Tuesday, October 8th, to celebrate the occasion. The ceremony will take place on the grounds of Rawsonville Elementary School, adjacent to the trail. Families and neighbors are encouraged to attend! We will have B2B Trail giveaways and updates on future trail construction.
