The ITC Corridor Trail is depicted on the City’s 2011 Non-Motorized Master Plan. It will provide a non-motorized recreation link traversing the entire City of Novi from north to south. Ultimately, this trail will link regional facilities – such as Maybury Park, the I-275 Corridor and Hines Park – in the neighboring communities of Northville, Livonia and Westland with parks in Novi.
Once the ITC Corridor Trail is complete, park enthusiasts will be able to hike and bicycle between different parks and communities instead of risking sharing traffic lanes with larger motor vehicles or packing their equipment into their own motorized vehicle. This project will allow people to get between parks and to our local communities safely while improving their personal health and cutting back on motorized vehicle emissions. This corridor strengthens the local economy, helps to build sustainable communities and improves the quality of life by creating new recreational opportunities. The trail is an important link in the overall plan for linking recreation throughout the state.
