ANN ARBOR – A section of the Border-to-Border Trail at Gallup Park will close for repairs starting the week of Aug. 15.

The segment between the vehicle bridge and Mitchell Field will be sectioned off for ongoing maintenance, which the city is expecting to complete by mid-November.

“While the temporary closure is an inconvenience to users, the replacement of the pathway is intended to provide longer-term durability,” reads a city release. “Improvements to the trail will include replacing the existing asphalt surface with a new concrete surface, widening the path to 10 feet and updating site furnishings.”

During construction, signs and barricades will be set up to detour trail users around the area.

The Border-to-Border Trail features 35 miles of non-motorized pathways throughout Washtenaw County. It has six trail corridors in Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Dexter and Ypsilanti.
