Parks and Recreation has received Federal and local match funding for the design and construction of the Point Douglas Regional Trail between Battle Creek Regional Park and Interstate 494. A long-range plan for the regional trail was approved in 2022. The project will include design and construction of an off-street shared use trail including signage, stormwater facilities, and installation of site amenities such as lighting, benches, bike racks, and litter receptacles.
A tentative schedule of the project is as follows:
- Spring 2024 - Analysis and Design Development
- Summer/Fall 2024 - Construction documents
- Winer 2024/2025 - Approvals and Permitting
- Spring 2025 - Bidding/contracting
- Summer/Fall 2025 - Construction

We are currently in the process of awarding a Professional Service Agreement to a multidisciplinary firm for the Design and Engineering of the project. Once a contract is awarded, we'll begin the Inventory and Analysis part of the project and identify opportunities for community engagement.
