Ram Trail II construction begins

Ram Trail II construction begins

Our pedestrian trails are among Delhi Township’s finest and most-loved amenities. A great thing will soon get even better, because construction began on Ram Trail Phase II on May 30.

The original Ram Trail runs along the north side of Holt Road from Eifert Road to the school complex at Campus Drive and Kahres Road. Ram II will pick up on the northeast corner of Eifert and Holt Roads and continue northeast to Jaycee Park, connecting with a large, dense residential area.

“This area has historically been underserved by pedestrian amenities,” said Delhi Township Director of Community Development Tracy L. C. Miller. About a mile long, Ram II will meander through woods, wetlands and fields, offering a beautiful and peaceful route.

Funding will come in large part from a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant made available for projects of this type by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT). The grant will fund approximately $696,440 of the total $1.2 million cost.

Future trail plans

In July, Delhi Township will re-submit its proposal for another trail project — the Ram II Burchfield Trail — to Ingham County for review. If approved, this trail would be built using funds from the Ingham County trails millage approved several years ago. It will likely be late fall before township officials find out if the project will be funded. But Miller said officials are hopeful, since this project was identified in the Ingham County trails plan as a top priority for funding. The township is also pursuing CMAQ funding for this project.
