Cannon Township to close portion of trail

Cannon Township will soon be closing a section of the trail while repair work is performed, hoping that the repairs will be completed in a two-week period. During that time, no traffic will be allowed on the section of the trail running west from Sunfish Lake Avenue to Dix Farms. Please do not try to go around this area by walking on the private drive or through the woods. These repairs should solve the township’s water problems.
