Public Information Meeting to Present Feasibility Study Regarding a Shared Use Path Connection from the Hop River Trail to Quarry Road in Bolton


The Connecticut Department of Transportation (Department) will conduct a public information meeting to present the findings of Project No. 12-98, a feasibility study that investigated a potential shared use path connection between the Hop River Trail and Quarry Road in Bolton, on Wednesday, November 16, 2016, at the Bolton Senior Center, 104 Notch Road, Bolton, Connecticut. The presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m. 

The primary purpose of the meeting is to inform the public about the findings of the feasibility study that investigated a potential shared use path connection between the Hop River State Park Trail at Bolton Notch State Park to Quarry Road, a local road approximately 0.5 miles east of the trail parking lot.  The trail parking lot is also the terminus of the Charter Oak Greenway Shared Use Path and a spur connection would help to provide access to the trail system for communities throughout the Route 44 corridor.

The meeting is being held to afford a full opportunity for public participation and to allow open discussion of any views and comments the community may have concerning this study.
