Troy Trail and Pathway Project "Reboot"

That was quick! I posted on Sunday (11/22/15) that the Troy Trail and Pathway Project was delayed. Now it appears that the delay was only temporary. Hooray!

Thank you to the City staff and the City Council for moving forward on this project. I'm looking forward to riding my bicycle on the new pathway when it's completed within the next few years!

Below you can see the projected route of the trail/pathway.

Troy Trail and Pathway Project Delayed

Pathway Project public meeting
11/24/15 UPDATE: On 11/23/15, the Troy City Council voted to move forward with the project. Click here for more details.

In the words of the Troy Times, it's "back to the drawing board" for the proposed nonmotorized trail and pathway system that would connect the Clinton River Trail in Auburn Hills to the Troy Civic Center.

I don't believe I'm alone in being disappointed by the delay. But, I hope the City Council and staff continue on with an alternative plan that doesn't adversely affect residents near the proposed route.

City staff has posted the video recording of the 11/9/15 joint Troy City Council and Planning Commission meeting to YouTube where this topic was discussed. At the bottom of this post is the video.

Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan's October 2015 Public Meeting

Sorry, I'm a little late posting about this. In late October, I attended the Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan's "BEST: Regional Master Transit Plan Public Meeting" at The Detroit Zoo. I was curious about the proposed bus rapid transit (BRT) system along the Woodward Avenue corridor from Downtown Detroit to Downtown Pontiac servicing 26 stations in Wayne and Oakland Counties. As I've mentioned in previous posts I hope that Troy City staff and elected officials are working to ensure that the Troy Transit Center is utilized by the proposed Woodward Avenue BRT.

I've posted some photos below that I took at the 10/22/15 event...
