Safer Road Crossings on the Trail
The Michigan Air Line Trail, like many newer rail-trails, was designed with added safety features. Nearly all of the road crossings on the Air Line Trail —eight of them— include some type of warning beacon.
These beacons are designed to alert motorists that a trail user is planning to cross, and some actually require a stop, much like a typical crosswalk at a standard stop light.
We have prepared a brochure to help educate motorists and trail users. It is reproduced below, and you can download a PDF copy right here.
