Acme Connector Trail

A trail 20 years in the making! The 1.25 mile proposed Acme Connector Trail will help residents and visitors safely access businesses, existing trails and recreation opportunities. This project is a big step to a more walkable and bikeable Acme Township.

Preliminary design to connect the TART at Bunker Hill to the new Meijer and M72 corridor is complete. The planning effort was led by the Acme Township Parks & Trails Committee and supported by TART Trails.

In August 2016, the Acme Township Board of Trustees voted unanimously for trail development in the area. This includes moving forward with detailed design of the connector trail at Bunker Hill as well as the first leg of the regional Traverse City to Charlevoix Trail from Bayside Park to Deepwater Natural Area. Acme Township Trustees have voted on resolutions of support for:

  • Traverse City to Charlevoix Trail concept plan
  • Approval of the Acme Connector Trail design and agreement to move forward with developing engineering and funding plans
  • Developing an implementation plan for the first leg of the regional trail between Bayside Park and Deepwater Natural Area. 

Acme Township is requesting the submission of proposals from consulting Civil Engineering & Landscape Architecture firms to provide professional design engineering services for the development of the Acme Connector Trail located between Bunker Hill Road and The Village at Grand Traverse property within Acme Township, Grand Traverse County, MI. One firm will be selected to provide design engineering services for the project. Interested firms can see details below.
