Macomb Orchard Trail Updates

The Macomb Orchard Trail bridge over M-53 near 32 Mile is under construction as of April 14th.  Its completion is expected around the end of July.

In the meantime, the bigger issue is the International Transmission Companies (ITC) “scorched earth” policy of clearcutting trees within their power line easement.  This easement is on both the trail and the neighboring residential properties.  So far, ITC has cleared trees along the trail from Dequindre to Romeo.  They plan on doing the same devastation to the Clinton River Trail.  Both counties are pursuing all options to prevent or mitigate this destruction.

The Detroit Free Press has an article describing ITC’s devastating actions.
