Riverfront Revival: Exciting Projects on the Grand River Water Trail

Notice anything new along the Greater Lansing riverfront? Tri-County has been hard at work this summer collaborating with local communities and regional partners to implement several projects that improve navigability and encourage regional travel of the Middle Grand River, our region’s most significant recreational waterway.

Last December, the Middle Grand River Water Trail, which extends for 87 miles throughout Clinton, Eaton, Ingham, and Ionia counties, was selected as one of Michigan’s first state-designated water trails as a result of Tri-County’s regional water trail development plan. This plan and Tri-County’s water trail projects explore new ways to improve the connectivity, quality of life, accessibility, safety, and mobility of our region.
