New Connection to the Conner Creek Greenway to start Construction Soon.

The Detroit Eastside Community Collaborative is partnering with Nortown Community Development Corporation and the City of Warren to extend the Conner Creek Greenway across eight mile road into Warren. The City of Warren began the initial phase of a planned non-motorized network within the city of Warren by extending the Connor Creek Greenway from the City of Detroit north into Warren. The non-motorized trail includes a total of 2.3 miles of bike lanes starting at the intersection of Conner and Outer Drive, heading west on Outer Drive to Van Dyke and then north on Van Dyke up to Stephens Road in the City of Warren.

The trail project will include median enhancements at the Eight Mile Road and Van Dyke intersection that will include stamped concrete crosswalks and landscaping. This non-motorized trail project fills a gap identified in the Governor’s Belle Isle to Wisconsin Trail proposal. This along with other bike lanes planned for the city of Warren will establish a bike path for riders from Maheras-Gentry Park in Detroit to Metro Beach in Harrison Township.

Coordination and planning efforts on the Detroit side of the project are made possible by funding from the Community Foundation For Southeast Michigan.
