Public-Private Partnership Accelerates Completion of Border to Border Trail

. November 30, 2018.

A successful partnership between the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Committee and the Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative is responsible for accelerating the completion schedule for the Border to Border (B2) trail. A spate of development in Dexter pushed the Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative to come on board in 2015 and connect Dexter, Chelsea, and Stockbridge. The B2B’s Chelsea-Stockbridge connector will be open before the end of the year. The Dexter portion of the trail has proven to be extremely popular, with 360,000 passes in the two years since sensors were installed. Eventually, bikers and pedestrians will be able to take the B2B Trail across all of Washtenaw County, and eventually, onto Jackson and Wayne Counties as well. More than 40 miles of the trail are complete, with another 35 miles to go.
