Little Traverse Wheelway Petoskey Link Funded

Little Traverse Wheelway
The Little Traverse Wheelway is a 26-mile paved bike path which currently stretches from Charlevoix to intersection of M-119 and Pleasantview Road at Harbor Springs, with a few missing pieces.

Now the link from Petoskey’s Magnus Park and Resort Township’s East Park near Bay Harbor will be built thanks to Federal Transportation Enhancement funds. More than $1 million dollars will come through MDOT from this fund, and Petoskey is providing $288,376 in city money for the project. Transportation Enhancements can provide up to 80% of a projects funds.

Petoskey parks and recreation director Al Hansen said that he hopes bids will go out this sprind, and that construction will be complete in 2008.

Currently people are asked to not use this segment of the trail, but should use the US 31 road shoulder.
