Berrien County Roads

Posted on July 26, 2015


It is the season for chip and seal and many Berrien County Roads have had gravel spread on them making them challenging to ride on. For the time being we are not changing routes, but be aware that you may need to navigate around some of these areas.

The following have been affected or are scheduled for work: Buchanan, Niles, Three Oaks area, Buffalo Rd from Bakertown east to bottom of hill, from Boyle Lake to Sage, and from Nye to Rickermann, Olive Branch from Reed to Boyle Lake, Gardner from Elm Valley to Wagner, Flynn from Kruger to Elm Valley and Harbert to Sawyer, Snow from Spitzke to Hills, Weaver north and south of US-12 and Bond from Bell to Fort.

There are also a large number of roads northeast of Berrien Springs, notably: Tabor from Hillandale to Evans and Evans from Hipps Hollow to Pipestone

Leisure rides are perfect for new riders, families and anyone who wants ride at slower pace with a group that stays together. The leisure ride takes advantage of access to the bike paths along the river and on the Notre Dame campus. The ride will be 11-12 miles at about 10 mph.
