The Detroit Free Press reports the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan is working on an agreement with groups in Canada to connect the Great Lakes Way tract of trails and waterways between Port Huron and Toledo to trails on the other side of the border through joint marketing and possibly programming.

"All this will come together in 2024 when the new Gordie Howe International Bridge opens," says John Hartig, chair of the Great Lakes Way advisory group for the Community Foundation.
