Ribbon-cutting ceremony for new paving on Leelanau Trail

Fri, Sep  1, 2006 - By Missy Luyk

Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation (TART) Trails invites our members and the public to join in a ribbon-cutting celebration for a newly paved section of the Leelanau Trail. The section stretches 2.2 miles from the Suttons Bay Village limits south to Revold Road.

The celebration will take place at 10:00 am on Saturday, September 9, 2006. If you would like to attend the ceremony, please meet at the Leelanau County Road Commission, located at 10550 E. Eckerle Road (off Center Hwy.) in Suttons Bay. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place on the nearby Leelanau Trail.

TART is encouraging participants to bring their bicycle, walking shoes, or in-line skates. After the ribbon is cut, TART officials will invite participants to use the newly paved trail.

The Leelanau Trail is a 15-mile former railroad that stretches from Carter Road in Elmwood Township to downtown Suttons Bay. Including the new pavement, 8 miles of the Leelanau Trail are paved and 7 miles are unpaved.

Be one of the first to see this wonderful enhancement to our area trail system and hear about how it all came together. Come meet fellow enthusiasts and enjoy light refreshments. We look forward to seeing you there.

For more information, please contact the TART Trails office at 231-941-4300.
