Preliminary design of the Traverse City ↔ Charlevoix Trail launched in the summer of 2018 for the Acme through Elk Rapids trail segment. The goal of preliminary design is to identify a preferred trail alignment and the costs associated with its construction and maintenance. Community input is a key consideration in the process for identifying this preferred alignment, and a number of engagement activities have taken place with landowners, the public and local agencies over the past few months.
