New Baltimore will expand recreation options with the expansion of a non-motorized trail along County Line Road.
Construction on the path will begin in spring or summer this year on the east side of County Line from Crapeau Creek to Main Street. It will enhance a previously constructed trail from the creek to Anchor Bay High School that aimed to enhance recreation and safety, especially for students who walk to school.
"It will lead right down to Main Street," Clerk Marcia Shinska said Tuesday. "It will be a nice addition to the community."
The project will be paid for with a $172,157 Michigan Department of Transportation grant, $116,000 from the Michigan National Resource Trust Fund and approximate $117,000 from the city's public improvement fund. The city will also pay $5,749 for sidewalk removal in order to clear paths for construction, according to the community.
City council approved to forge ahead with engineering planning for the path at the Monday night meeting.
The trail is also destined to be part of the 70-mile Macomb County loop that would allow future connections to the Macomb Orchard Trail to the north and the Bridge to the Bay Trail to the east in St. Clair County, according to the city.
