Paint Creek Trailways Commission

Notice of Public Hearing

4480 Orion Road, Tuesday, March 21, 2023, 7:00 P.M.

Notice is hereby given that the Paint Creek Trailways Commission will hold a public hearing to receive public comments on a Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund (MNRTF) grant application for the Renovation of Paint Creek Trail Bridge 31.7 in the City of Rochester.

Bridge 31.7 is a nearly 100-year-old timber railroad bridge that crosses the Paint Creek north of Ludlow Avenue, just as the Paint Creek Trail starts to pass by Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve. Structural inspection of the bridge documents extensive decay of its structural components, compromising safety of the bridge. A complete renovation will improve accessibility and safety concerns for all users. The renovation design follows the standards of universal design, allowing access for all and increasing the width and weight capacity of the bridge to allow safe passage for emergency and maintenance vehicles.

The Public Hearing will be held Tuesday, March 21, 2023 commencing at 7:00 p.m. Michigan Time, at the Paint Creek Cider Mill Building, 4480 Orion Road, Rochester, MI  48306.

All citizens are encouraged to attend and participate.

A copy of the draft grant application will be available to the public for inspection beginning Tuesday, March 7, 2023 during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Wednesday) at the Paint Creek Trailways Commission Offices, 4480 Orion Road, Rochester, Oakland County, Michigan. It will also be available at Rochester City Hall, 400 6th Street, Rochester, Oakland County, Michigan and online at and
