JACKSON, Mich. (AP) – The Michigan House has voted to approve a bill that includes funding for four recreational trail projects in Jackson County.
Our media partners at The Jackson Citizen Patriot and MLive reported Monday that the four projects in Jackson County include work on the Lakelands Trail, the Sparks Park Inter-City Trail, the Horton Road Trail and the Fourth Street Connector development project.
Lakelands Trail development would include $300,000 of work on 13 miles, while the Fourth Street Connector would also get $300,000 to create a half-mile trail linking with the city of Jackson’s Inter-City Trail. Horton Road Trail developments would get $94,000 for building a half-mile trial connector.
The bill deals with nearly $28 million in funding in all, and is moving on to the state Senate for consideration.
