State chips in $390K for North Bank Trail

The first phase of the North Bank Trail was approved for another significant grant this week. The Michigan Department of Transportation is pitching in $390,000 toward the first phase of the nonmotorized path - 3.2-miles that will stretch from Fruitport Road east to 130th Avenue in Spring Lake Township. The trail is planned to eventually extend 18 miles along the former Grand Trunk Railroad, connecting with the Musketawa Trail east of Coopersville and other regional trails.

The multipurpose path will also connect with Lakeside Trail west of Fruitport Road. That trail extends through the Village of Spring Lake and connects with 26 miles of existing bike paths in Spring Lake Township.

Phase 1 will include trail-head parking at 144th Avenue.
