Spring is still months away, but Michigan’s Delta Conservation District (DCD) is busy getting ready for park projects in 2020, according to Daily Press.

At Pioneer Trail Park, DCD Executive Director Rory Mattson said work on the park’s new sewer system is already underway.

“Late fall and this winter, we’re installing all the piping for the sewer system,” he said.

The installation, which is expected to cost the county an estimated $31,000, will be finished in the spring.

“When that project gets done, we should have 21 full hook-up sites,” Mattson said.

These campsites will include electricity, water and sewer hook-ups. Currently, sites at Pioneer Trail Park only offer electricity and water hook-ups.

Additionally, a new entrance sign for Pioneer Trail Park is set to be installed in the spring at a cost of $5,000. The park’s previous sign was removed as a result of the Michigan Department of Transportation’s work on the U.S. 2 and 41 bridge over the Escanaba River.

Mattson said the new sign may be more visible at night than the park’s former sign was.

“We’re going to try to light it,” he said.
