EAST LANSING, Mich. — The Northern Tier Trail will soon be home to new wayfinding signage thanks to funding support from the Ingham County Trails and Parks Millage.
Millage funds will cover the cost and installation of new 1/4-mile markers, directional signage and trailhead maps along the trail, with installation expected to begin as early as Wednesday, Feb. 26 (weather permitting). A total of 38 signs will be installed at no cost to the City of East Lansing.
“This is another great East Lansing project that is being supported by the Ingham County Trails and Parks Millage, which was approved by just under 70 percent of East Lansing voters back in November 2014,” said East Lansing Parks, Recreation & Arts Assistant Director Wendy Wilmers Longpre. “The improvements we have been able to make as a result of the millage support will be enjoyed by so many of our community members for countless years to come.”
Millage funds were previously awarded to the City of East Lansing to repair/replace six pedestrians bridges and make surface improvements along the Northern Tier Trail as well as to support the White Park Trail Extension and Natural Features Enhancement Project, which began earlier this month.
