Jupiter Trail North Construction Underway
September 3, 2019. Construction of the north segment of the Jupiter Trail from West River Drive to Belmont Center Drive started two weeks ago yesterday! Over this last week, crews removed select trees to make room for the new path, and installed two new catch basins for stormwater control. Work has begun on the retaining walls at the White Pine Trail connection, with additional work continuing on that this week. Please see the map in the previous post for the location of the trail extension.
August 19, 2019. Plainfield Charter Township is excited to announce that the construction of the north segment of the Jupiter Trail will begin this week. This segment will be an 8-foot wide asphalt trail running parallel to the east side of Jupiter Avenue from West River Drive to the White Pine Trail, and along the west side of Jupiter Avenue from the White Pine Trail to Belmont Center Drive, directly south of the YMCA’s sidewalk system. The trail will be separated from the travel lanes but completely within the Jupiter Avenue right-of-way.
When this trail segment is finished, the Jupiter Trail will extend from Plainfield Avenue to the YMCA with a connection to the White Pine Trail network.
While work is being done for the trail, there will be shoulder closures and some intermittent lane closures. At no time will the road be completely closed. We anticipate the trail construction to be completed in about 6 weeks (early October).
