Planning and construction on the B2B continue despite the snow and cold! The latest updates on the B2B are listed below by segment.
Dexter-Chelsea Trail, Freer to Lima Center – The contractor has completed most of the tree and brush removal work. Seventy percent of the silt fence is installed and path grading is scheduled for late February.

M-52 Trail, Green Lake Campground to Leeks Road – A public information meeting was held in January at Lyndon Township Hall, to review the projects along this corridor: the trail segment from the Green Lake Campground to North Territorial Road, the trail segment from North Territorial Road to Leeks Road, the tunnel and trailhead at Lyndon Township Hall. Construction on all of these projects could occur later this summer and/or fall. The first step in this process is the tree removals. This work began in early February.
