Title: U.S. Bike Updates within Detroit: USBR 25 and USBR 30
Post by: Todd Scott on May 09, 2009, 09:31:44 am
First, our Detroit Greenways Coalition has developed a Detroit Greenways Network brochure. This brochures shows our preferred, interconnected trails, greenways, and on-road connections for the cities of Detroit, Hamtramck, and Highland Park. The brochure and map are on-line at http://www.michigantrails.org/tmp/2009-Detroit-Greenways-Network-Brochure.pdf (Warning: It's a 26 megabyte PDF)

I expect USBR 25 and 30 to use some of these preferred routes,including Jefferson Avenue, Fort Street, W. Vernor, Michigan Avenue.

Here are some relevant updates along those routes:
There are other groups involved in adding bike lanes to additional segments along these routes, but it's just too early too announce anything.

As more updates come along, I'll post them here.

Regarding USBR 25 specifically, in Michigan this essentially is the "eastern shore route", from Ohio into Monroe County then through Detroit into Macomb and St. Clair County, ending who knows where, possibly up in the thumb.  Macomb County has a good opportunity to use a segment of the planned Macomb Bike Loop, which I think Todd knows about, and which we ought to discuss with John Crumm at a tavern somewhere, soon as we get the chance.  In St. Clair County, we expect USBR 25 to use segments of the County "Bridge to Bay Trail", although not exclusively since that is not complete.

The Monroe County and Wayne County portions of this route are where I have the least idea where it could go, so I'm very interested in all of this.
