Description

The ITC Corridor Trail is depicted on the City’s 2011 Non-Motorized Master Plan. It will provide a four-mile, non-motorized recreation link traversing the entire City of Novi from north to south, connecting the Ascension Providence Hospital (formerly St. John Providence) campus near 11 Mile and Beck Roads to ITC Community Sports Park at Eight Mile and Napier Roads.  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.

The City of Novi and ITC Holdings began discussing the project in 2011 before breaking ground in 2013. The easement provided by ITC Holdings allows for the trail to run along their corridor at a safe distance from the power lines. The trail’s proximity to the power line corridor in some areas also allows for the public to act as a secondary reporting mechanism for ITC Holdings, providing more eyes and ears on the power lines to help deter vandalism and provide quicker repairs from storm damage when needed. Funding for the trail was primarily generated by the City of Novi, with contributions from the Novi Parks Foundation and a State of Michigan Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) grant.
