A Public Informational Meeting to explain the proposed Trout Brook Trail extension is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017, at 6 p.m.
The Town of West Hartford is planning the continued construction of the Trout Brook Trail between Farmington and Asylum Avenues. The trail has been constructed in parts between New Park and Farmington Avenues. Design of the trail is underway and the project is slated to start construction in the summer of 2017.
The Town of West Hartford will hold a public informational meeting to explain the project and receive comments on Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017, at 6 p.m. in Room 400 at the West Hartford Town Hall, 50 South Main St. Feedback from the community is an invaluable part of any project and is greatly appreciated.
The project calls for the construction of a paved path that will allow for pedestrians and bicycles. This section of multi-use trail is part of the Town’s long term goal to create a trail between Elmwood, West Hartford Center, and the University of Connecticut parcel. The trail also supports CTfastrak, which has a station on New Park Avenue near the trail head. This section of multi-use trail will be constructed on public street right-of-way and State property adjacent to Trout Brook.
Based upon preliminary design, construction costs for the project are estimated to be $771,000, with Federal funds providing $282,000 of those costs, State funds providing $368,000, and the Town of West Hartford providing the remaining $121,000.
Anyone interested in obtaining more information, or providing input, may do so by contacting the West Hartford Engineering Division at (860) 561-7540.
