New Haven's section of Shoreline Greenway Trail to be subject of meeting

NEW HAVEN — The public is invited to a meeting on a feasibility study of a possible route for the Shoreline Greenway Trail’s New Haven section at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Nathan Hale School, 480 Townsend Ave.
The study, completed by Stantec Consulting Services, will be presented with opportunities for questions, answers and comments, according to a statement.
John Eberle of Stantec, who supervised the study, “will discuss maps and drawings of the prospective trail connecting Lighthouse Point Park with the Morris Creek bridge on South End (Road), where the trail will connect to East Haven’s section of the Shoreline Greenway Trail,” the statement said. The proposed trail traverses land parcels predominantly owned by the New Haven Land Trust and the city, the statement said.
The Shoreline Greenway Trail will be a multi-use continuous trail for non-motorized transportation spanning approximately 25-miles from Lighthouse Point Park on New Haven Harbor to Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison, the statement said.
It will be a hiking and biking trail passing through the shoreline towns of New Haven, East Haven, Branford, Guilford and Madison. More than 40 percent of the trail route is approved, several trail sections are under construction, and two trail sections have been completed with their final topping in East Haven and at Hammonasset, the statement said.
