Huron Township — Events are planned this week to mark the completion of a 30-mile greenway for bicycle riders, walkers and runners in southeast Michigan.
The Downriver Linked Greenways Initiative says a ribbon-cutting is Wednesday on the Flat Rock-Oakwood Connector Trail at Oakwoods Metropark in Wayne County’s Huron Township. On Saturday, a community celebration takes places at Huroc Park in Flat Rock.
The mile-long trail is the final piece of a 30-mile east-west greenway connecting Oakwoods Metropark and Lake Erie Metropark.
Funding for the about $684,000 project was provided through federal money and a local match from the state Department of Transportation and Department of Natural Resources. Work included the path between Oakwoods Metropark and Huroc Park.
Construction on the final link began in May.
