Red Run was a Federal Project 1970
The Red Run in Warren as we know it today came about
via the USA Federal Flood Control Act of 1970.
Make no mistake about it.
The USA House of Representatives Document # 91-431
via Chief Engineer of the United States Army Corps of Engineering.
Back in 1970 , the sum of $40 Million was allocated to the project.
Inflation calculators peg $1 worth of 1970 dollars is now worth $6.00
It was a very expensive project, way beyond any local cities budget.
Oakland and Macomb Counties along with SEMCOG, would do well to
create an interconnected multi-use trail along the access path.
The area would benefit from Eco-Tourism by drawing in people
and keeping local residents from constantly travelling elsewhere.
