Extending the rail trail to New Haven

The NHRs Ann DeMatteo reports that the Hamden section of the Farmington Canal rail trail is complete. There's no map, but I gather that means they extended it from the Wilbur Cross down to Newhallville. The article also says that the New Haven trail should be further extended by this fall.

If you like biking and work in New Haven, you may wanna check it out.

The trail goes all the way down to Newhallville, and the remaining 0.5 miles should be completed within a month or so.

The last section of trail, between Yale and the city's waterfront, is in design and should be built in a year or so.

Thanks for posting!

Put toll booths on our section to keep out of towners off it. They didnt pay for the property, the paving, and the maintnance. Charge them for the privlage to use our park like we charge to use Mixville. Make everyone apply to town hall for a permit to walk, bike, jog, skate, or run.
