Border to Border Trail Closed on Water Street Redevelopment Project

CITY OF YPSI - Logoblue.jpg


Ypsilanti, MI, April 8, 2016: The Border to Border Trail located on the Water Street Redevelopment Project is temporarily closed, effective immediately.

The City is taking precautionary measures because of preliminary environmental test results received today. The new test results indicate an elevated level of PCBs (Polychlorinated Biphenyls) in locations near the trail site. Although PCBs are not a direct danger to humans and pets by occasional contact, long-term and prolonged contact can have harmful effects.

The City is taking proactive measures to protect the health and safety of our residents and needs additional time to complete the full study, assess the level of risk, and create an appropriate containment and remediation plan to provide a safe recreational trail for the community.

More information will be shared when it becomes available.
