Based on the results of a study by an engineering firm, it was found that Burnham and Scoville roads in Avon would be the most suitable roads for a marked bicycle path.
According to an article in the Hartford Courant, the study results were presented at an Avon town council meeting on July 11. Based on interest from Avon residents, town officials have been looking to establish a bicycle route through town that would have sharrows to alert motorists to watch for cyclists.
Avon Town Manager Brandon Robertson said that after reviewing the report, the council decided to focus its efforts on Scoville Road.
The Courant article notes that the town allocated $2,500 for the bike route project for this fiscal year, but it is not clear when the work on the project will begin.
