Cheshire’s portion of the Linear Trail may see even more upgrades when work is completed, thanks to the State Department of Transportation.
Scott Bushee, DOT’s Cheshire Linear Trail project manager, requested that the Town Council approve two new restroom facilities, one of which will be located at the southwest corner of West Main Street and the other adjacent to the proposed parking lot on Jarvis Street, a water fountain at Schoolhouse Road, and fund approximately $10,000 toward the $100,000 total for a traffic control pedestrian signal at West Main Street crossing section.
Regarding the water fountain and two restrooms, Bushee explained maintenance will be the Town’s responsibility.
Town Councilor Tim Slocum referred the upgrades to the Planning Committee during the Council’s meeting on June 17. His hope is to have the information reviewed and be ready for a vote during the Council’s scheduled July 8 meeting.
The State DOT will be holding a meeting tonight in the Council Chambers at Town Hall, beginning at 7 p.m. According to Bushee, a Powerpoint presentation with renderings of the trail will be displayed, and project engineers will be available to answer questions from the public.
