Mussels and Piles

It’s already been an interesting week on the Huron River Drive D2 Segment of the B2B trail project in Scio Township. Yesterday, staff from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources were onsite to do an environmental field investigation of the Huron River. This was required before our contractor could begin any work on a temporary bridge within the river. Two viable mussels were found and they were successfully relocated.

Now that the environmental field investigation has been completed, our contractors will begin driving piles for the temporary bridge this week. Pile driving can be a loud operation, we appreciate your patience during this stage of the project. As planned, river users can expect to see river restrictions/channelization in the coming weeks. Please use caution around our work zone, in the river or in the Dexter-Huron Metropark.

If you have questions about the construction project, please contact Jason Voigt, project manager, (313) 434-4601, jvoigt@wadetrim.com
