KALKASKA, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says improvements have been completed along the Kalkaska Route, which includes Snowmobile Trail No. 79 in northeastern Kalkaska County.

Improvements to the dual-use recreational trail include constructing 0.5 miles of new trail and installing a bridge over Goose Creek.

The DNR says the project was necessary to replace a narrow and structurally deficient bridge and to move the trail into the woods away from vehicular traffic on a county road.

The project was funded using grants from the recreational trails, off-road vehicle and snowmobile programs.

More information about off-road vehicle and snowmobile trails in Michigan is available on the state’s website.
