The Department of Natural Resources announced today that a portion of the Pere Marquette State Rail-Trail, approximately 5.4 miles in length, will be closed for asphalt surfacing during the months of June and July.
The closure begins at the east end of the trail by the Clare Moose Lodge at Washington Avenue, to approximately two miles west of Farwell.
The surfacing project is expected to be completed by the end of July.
The project is funded by the Michigan Department of Transportation from funding it received from the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
The Pere Marquette Rail-Trail (PMRT) is a 28 mile paved trail that traverses Midland and Isabella Counties in the central part of Michigan, runing between Midland and Clare.
