In what is surely welcome news to both recreational cyclists and commuters, the Ann Arbor News reports that the planned countywide bicycle trail along the Huron River is making steady progress, with a large section connecting Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti set to open within the next month:

The two-mile segment, which runs from the Dixboro Road bridge along Huron River Drive past Washtenaw Community College and St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, will be the first major section of the planned 35-mile trail to be completed outside of Ann Arbor or Ypsilanti.

If a few links are completed through Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, the trail may run uninterrupted from Ann Arbor’s west side through much of Ypsilanti within a few years.
