Cheshire’s stretch of the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail will likely not be complete until at least 2017, State Department of Transportation officials explained Wednesday night.
Once the Trail is connected throughout Cheshire, it will finish a 23-mile stretch of trail that travels from New Haven to Southington, according to DOT Trail Project Manager Scott Bushee. Three portions of trail remain to be completed, all of which will be done at different times. Bushee estimated that the section between Cornwall Avenue and West Main Street, which will cut across Dalton Enterprises, Inc., go over Willow Brook, and cross a residential driveway, will likely be finished in 2017, once different state and environmental approvals are garnered.
The stretch between West Main Street and Jarvis Street is the Town of Cheshire’s responsibility, and construction is expected to begin in 2015. North of Jarvis Street to the Southington town line will commence in 2016, should everything go as planned.
