March 26, 2021 – The Pere-Marquette Rail Trail will be closed from the University Drive crossing to Northwood University’s Mullinax Acres (east of the Sugnet Road crossing) daily from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. beginning Monday, March 29 as crews perform brush removal along the trail. 

The trail will reopen daily at 6 p.m. and close again the following morning at 8 a.m. through Thursday, April 1. It is anticipated that work will be completed by 6 p.m. on April 1.

Trail users may detour around the closure by using the pedestrian path at Mullinax Acres to travel south onto the Northwood campus; take Naegele Drive to Whiting Drive; then take Whiting Drive to University Avenue and re-enter the trail at the University Avenue trail crossing. See the map below for the detour route.

Due to the dangers of flying debris and high-powered equipment in use, it is critical that trail users do not disregard closure barricades and remain out of the trail closure area while work is underway.

For more information, please contact Midland Parks and Recreation at 989-837-6930.
