Skip Navigation LinksHome » News » News Article

August 30, 2019 - ​The Riverside Park pathway portion of the Border-to-Border Trail, between Wall Street and Pontiac Trail, is in need of replacement as part of ongoing maintenance. Work is scheduled to start on Monday, Sept. 9 and is expected to be complete in October, weather permitting. Signs and barricades will be installed to safely direct users away from the construction zone. The city asks that trail users follow the posted detour as they ride, walk, rollerblade and commute along this trail.

While the temporary closure is an inconvenience to users, the replacement of the pathway is intended to bring the trail to current standards, provide longer-term durability and a better surface. A detour map (PDF) is available for an alternate route. Additionally, the city bike map is available at to determine other alternate routes.

This project was partially funded by a generous grant from the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission.

Any questions can be directed to Landscape Architect/Park Planner Hillary Hanzel at The city thanks trail users in advance for their patience. Please see the map for further site details (PDF).
