Border-to-Border Trail: Ribbon-cutting event opens new 2.6 miles on Dec. 8

 

HWPI and WCPARC are thrilled to announce the opening of a new B2B trail segment! This segment covers 2.6 miles beginning at the intersection of Werkner Road and M52, north of Chelsea, and ending at the DNR’s Green Lake Campground entrance.

A huge thanks to the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation, the DNR, and all of our donors and partners who made this possible.

Please join the HWPI and WCPARC for a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the newly completed section of the Border-to-Border Trail at 11:30 a.m., on Saturday, Dec. 8. A trail walk will follow the ceremony (weather dependent). Parking is available on Werkner Road, at Timbertown in Chelsea or at the Green Lake Campground.

Work has begun on the B2B Trail segment beginning at Freer Road, just east of Chelsea, to Lima Center Road. The Contractor started tree removal at Freer Road, the west end of the project. This work will continue through December, and some of the path grading work may begin later this year.

The ceremony and walk will be held on the south end of the B2B segment (at Werkner Road and M52). The public is invited to attend.

The contractor has finalized the boardwalks, paving of the final wearing course of asphalt, and the driveway approaches. They continue to work on installing safety railings and split rail fences and completing the slope restoration work. The project will be complete by early December, with final tree and slope restoration work scheduled for the spring of 2019.

Additional landscaping and signage will also be added in 2019.
