Michigan City To Get Maritime Heritage Trail

The city of Alpena in northeastern Michigan is one step closer to getting a maritime heritage "trail," and it's much more than a virtual computer trail or a map. It's a $2.9 million dollar project, and according to this story in the Alpena News, the trail will include a walking/biking path, a bridge over a local river, and connections to historic mills, dock restorations, lighting, landscaping, bike racks, and interpretive signs. The trail will also lead to connections with a wildlife sanctuary and a local museum. Most of the funding comes from the federal government and the Michigan Department of Transportation.
