LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Projects including nonmotorized trails and streetscape improvements in Alger, Lenawee, Muskegon and Washtenaw counties and Detroit are getting a share of more than $2.6 million in federal money.

The state on Tuesday announced the federal Transportation Enhancement grant money.

The projects in Alger, Muskegon and Washtenaw counties include bike paths, bike lanes or a combination of both. Streetscape improvements are planned in the Lenawee County community of Blissfield.

Money also will help pay for a portion of the Detroit RiverWalk near the Detroit/Wayne County Port Authority's new public dock and terminal.

More details on the projects are listed on the Michigan Department of Transportation's website.

    I love to bike ride, and think this is wonderful, but why do we have bike trails on some of the busiest streets in the city. No one rides on them and all they do is cause conjested traffic. The riders are so worried about the drivers that they ride on the sidewalks.
