Walking, trail and other projects to share funding
A dozen walking and biking projects in southeastern Michigan will share $6.5 million in funding.
The Southeast Michigan Council of Governments says funding will come from the Transportation Alternatives Program.
Projects include more than $1 million for a greenway shared-use trail in Washtenaw County’s Pittsfield Township and $1 million for an Island Lake State Recreation Area trail connection in Livingston County’s Green Oak Township.
Nearly $730,000 will be used for non-motorized improvements along Cranbrook Road in Birmingham.
Hazel Park will get more than $522,000 for bicycle facilities.
The council supports coordinated local planning with technical, data and intergovernmental resources.
It serves Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair, Washtenaw, and Wayne counties.
