I was just thinking about this a few weeks ago while riding the East. How cool it would be if they could either tunnel under I-75 or build a "bike overpass" over I-75, connecting the proposed adventure park to Holdridge. Not sure where the appropriate location for that would be (end of Hess Rd is probably too far North) to have a good entrance into the Holdridge trail system. And like you said, it seems rather ambitious as I'm not sure the limited MTB aspects of the park would justify such a major project. Heck, they can just drive a few miles to the trail head
The end of Hess Rd is directly across the freeway from Holdridge Rd, which has an access road to the site.
IIRC, the pedestrian bridge for the Clinton River Trail that goes over Telegraph near Orchard Lk Rd cost about $3M.
