NILES — North of the Indiana-Michigan state line, one curvy little gap cuts the Michigan portion of the River Valley Trail in two.It’s a 1.2-mile stretch in Niles Township that has interrupted the ride or hike for trail users for several years.

But finally it’s on track to be completed — possibly in just over a year’s time.

 “We’re almost there,” said Jill DeLucia, chairwoman of the Niles Township Parks Commission. DeLucia’s hoping residents come to the Township Hall on Bell Road for an open house from 4 to 7 p.m. today to take a look at the final plans and to give their input.

“Whether it’s the location of benches or avoiding a certain area or making sure there’s signage in a certain spot, you get some great feedback from the public,” DeLucia said. “Any feedback is helpful in crafting a plan.” Wightman & Associates of Benton Harbor has engineered plans for the 1.2-mile piece of trail, which will fill the gap from where the township’s existing trail, which starts at the state line, ends at Brandywine Creek Nature Park to where the city of Niles’ portion of the trail picks up to the north at Fort and Third streets.
