Governor Malloy's office has put out two primary documents on his transportation vision--there's a the 5 year ramp up plan (2015-2019), and there's the 30-year plan.
The 5 year ramp up plan includes $101MM for bike ped work. The 30 year plan includes $780MM of bike ped projects, including $250MM for the Merritt Parkway path. Now all we need is for everybody to agree to pay for it! Easy as pie?
The Merritt Parkway project, complete streets, and connecting gaps in the trail network are equally weighted in the proposal. $30MM is laid out for trail maintenance.
There will be much to discuss in the legislative session!
