For Our Partners

Please explore the various documents, plans, and maps, below, that might be of interest to Downriver communities and trail users.

Master Plan

Our original plan was developed in 2000 through funding from numerous Downriver communities, Kodak and Rails-to-Trails, with assistance from Congressman John D. Dingell, State Representative George Mans, Downriver Community Conference and Michigan Sea Grant. The plan provides an overall vision for 21 communities in Wayne and Monroe Counties, distinguishes primary trail routes and local connectors, identifies potential funding resources and outlines project readiness criteria.

In 2008, a Master Plan Addendum was written to include updates on regional trail efforts and changes in funding resources since the original plan was written.

Wayfinding Manual

The Wayside Companion is offered to DLG cooperators who are developing their own wayside exhibit plan. It will help you determine if wayside exhibits are right for your project; how to define your interpretive themes, goals and objectives; how exhibits are fabricated and produced; and how to create the exhibits you want. The document also provides a template, color schemes and other DLG signage guidelines.

Downriver Delta Greenway Map

In 2008, the Fort-Visger Community Development Corporation created a map showing the linkages between the cities of Detroit zip code 48217, Ecorse, River Rouge and Lincoln Park on the North-South Connector of the Downriver Linked Greenways.
