The Macomb County Department of Roads has conducted an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Department of the Air Force and the Michigan Air National Guard to identify, evaluate and document the potential environmental, socioeconomic and human health effects associated with the proposed Lake St. Clair Shoreline Trail Project.

The proposed project is construction of a trail along the eastern edge of Selfridge Air National Guard Base (SANGB) to the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and M‐59 which would provide a non‐motorized, scenic trail along the shore of Lake St. Clair that provides connectivity to the proposed larger, local system of trails. The proposed project consists of two phases with Phase 1 being an east-west trail segment approximately 1.13 miles in length along the north side of North River Road. Phase 2 is a trail segment approximately 3.24 miles in length, the majority of which is located on the east side of Selfridge Air National Guard Base and includes a segment of trail that traverses an open water area of Lake St. Clair via an elevated wood and/or composite boardwalk. The Air Force would grant easements for the establishment of these trails.

The Final EA and the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), Finding of No Practical Alternative (FONPA) for the Lake St. Clair Shoreline Trail Project will undergo a 30-day public comment period from June 19 to July 19, 2014. During this period the public may submit comments on the EA and FONSI/FONPA. The EA and the FONSI/FONPA can be accessed here. Comments on the EA and the FONSI/FONPA should be submitted during the 30-day comment period via postal mail, fax, or e-mail to: 127th Public Affairs Office, 29553 George Avenue, Selfridge ANGB, MI 48045, or 127wg.paomb@ang.af.mil, or fax to 586-239-4430.
