Temporary Closure of Border-to-Border Trail Section to Begin in Mid-August

Skip Navigation LinksHome » News » News Article

Archived News Release: August 5, 2021 - ​A segment of the Border-to-Border Trail from Gallup Park to Mitchell Field in Ann Arbor is in need of repair as part of ongoing maintenance. Work is scheduled to start the week of Aug. 15 and is expected to be complete in mid-November (weather permitting).

Signs and barricades will be installed to safely direct users away from the construction zone. The City of Ann Arbor asks that trail users follow the posted detour as they ride, walk, rollerblade and commute along this path. While the temporary closure is an inconvenience to users, the replacement of the pathway is intended to provide longer-term durability. Improvements to the trail will include replacing the existing asphalt surface with a new concrete surface, widening the path to 10 feet and updating site furnishings. We thank you for your patience as we make these improvements to this important and popular stretch of path.

Project questions can be directed to Landscape Architect/Park Planner Adam Fercho at [email protected]. The city thanks trail users in advance for their patience. Please see the map online
