People who want to use the trail can just use Livernois as a detour. It is just west of the trail. A nice dirt road.

Just watch for fast drivers on that stretch of Livernois. I've walked that section and there are curves where drivers might not see pedestrians.

I was chased by big dogs on Livernois & won't go back there. Suggest you bike other trails like Clinton River or Macomb Orchard.

Unbelievable ...In what has to be described as the worst driving summer in decades, due to construction, they even close the trail... I know one business that is not suffering in this bad economy. The ones who make orange cones.. Runners and bikers...I would not recommend Livernois. There is very little room and and the road curves alot. It is far too dangerous to be using as a pedestrian. .
