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.
