Project Update #12: Border-to-Border Trail – Huron River Dr Trail (Scio Twp)

By November 10, 2023Project Updates

Construction continues on the D3 section of the Border-to-Broder (B2B) trail along the Huron River in Scio Township.    

The contractor has a few more items to finish up before the end of the construction season. In the next couple of weeks, residents can expect to see fence work, repair of crossroad cuts in the road surface, shoulder paving on Zeeb Rd near Huron River Dr, and slope stabilization near one of the retaining walls of the trail. Unfortunately, railroad approvals and the contractor schedule have pushed paving of the pathway and bridge erection to 2024.  

As a reminder, please refrain from entering the project site or climbing on the bridge pieces. It is an active construction zone and is not open for public use. The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will continue to send out updates as the project progresses.  

Have questions about the project? Contact Michele Ford, Sr. project manager – traffic & safety, at (734) 327-6652, or via email at fordm@wcroads.org.
