Troy Trailways Association
by on March 10, 2019

TROY — The first part of the Troy's Trailway network opened this past summer. The initial section is a 1.3-mile asphalt path that routes behind the Zion Church and Walsh College on Livernois.

In May 2017, the council unanimously approved a three-year budget that included stipends of $750,000 each year for the Troy Trails and Pathways plan. The Troy City Council approved easements with Zion Church, Walsh College and the Oakland County Water Resources Commission in a 5-0 vote Jan. 9, 2017, for the first segment of the trails. 

The next phase of the trail is currently charted to extend north of Wattles Road through the neighborhood using city right of ways where some walkways currently exist, through Troy School District property, and proceeding north to Long Lake Road.

Troy School District Superintendent Rich Machesky said the Troy School District and Board of Education are open to opportunities to partner with the community and are interested in helping with a pathway through the city. The next step is for Hubbell, Roth & Clark, the city’s design consultants, to  complete the design for the second phase of the trail, with bids going for construction of the trail this spring. Construction is slated to begin this summer, with restoration work to be complete in 2020.
