B2B Project Planning
The Border-to-Border Trail (B2B)
represents an ongoing collaboration of communities and organizations to construct a shared-use path that will link the open spaces of the Huron River Greenway. For implementation purposes, the B2B trail has been broken down into segments (A-M). There are many parts of the trail in various stages of planning, design or construction, either directly by Washtenaw County Parks or in partnership with other municipalities and organizations. This page highlights some of the most active segments or components of the B2B that are in process.
Project updates will be posted to this page or follow us on facebook
