Contract to extend Kiwanis Trail into Tecumseh approved


The current end of the Kiwanis Trail at the corner of Green Highway and Ives Road in Raisin Township is pictured May 15. The planned extension of the trail will run an 8-foot-wide asphalt path down the south side of Ives Road to Raisin Center Highway, where it will turn north to head into Tecumseh.

TECUMSEH — A contractor has been hired to extend the Kiwanis Trail into Tecumseh.

Lenawee County last week accepted a bid in the amount of $834,113.59 from Slusarski Escavating and Paving Inc. of Adrian to extend the Kiwanis Trail 1.25 miles into Cal Zorn Recreation Center in Tecumseh.

“Right now, the trail runs throughout the city of Adrian, connecting a number of parks and then it finds its way to Trestle Park and then it heads its way directly toward Tecumseh. It goes through Adrian Township for a couple of miles and then gets into Raisin Township for about 3½ miles and then it stops at the intersection of Green and Ives Road,” Kiwanis Regional Trail Authority chairperson Dusty Steele said. “So our path is going to go on the south side of Ives Road all the way to Raisin Center Highway at which point it will cross over and be on the west side of Raisin Center Highway and find its way all the way to Cal Zorn Park in Tecumseh, completing about an 11-mile trail if you count everything. It finally connects all four of our communities — the two townships and the cities.”
