The replacement of a failing culvert is set to begin along the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail, temporarily closing a 1.5-mile trail section in Osceola County, Michigan.
The Department of Natural Resources Parks and Recreation Division project will begin July 1 and is anticipated to be completed by the end of October.
The closure will take place between Sylvan Road (1 mile south of Ashton) and 9 Mile Road (6 miles north of Reed City). A detour has been established and is signed. The detour is as follows:
If traveling north, turn right (or east) on 9 Mile Road, turn left (or north) onto 210th Avenue and follow 1.5 miles to Sylvan Road; turn left (or west) and travel 0.2 miles until the White Pine Trail crosses Sylvan Road.
If traveling south, turn left (or west) onto Sylvan Road, turn right (or south) on 210th Avenue and follow for 1.5 miles; turn right (or east) on 9 Mile Road and travel 0.2 miles until the White Pine Trail crosses 9 Mile Road.
