The CTDOT is keeping the public updated on the Putnam Bridge Multimodal Trail Connections Feasibility Study with a comprehensive web site.
Rehabilitation of the Route 3 Putnam Bridge began earlier this year. When the project is complete, it will provide a new walkway on the northbound side of the bridge to accommodate future bicycle and pedestrian travel directly between Wethersfield and Glastonbury. Because the scope of the rehabilitation project does not provide access to the new walkway from either end of the bridge, additional planning, design, and funding will be required to provide this access at some point in the future.
The purpose of the Putnam Bridge Multimodal Trail Connections Feasibility Study is to advance the planning work for bicycle and pedestrian access to the bridge and evaluate how the new walkway can be connected to the network of existing (and planned) sidewalks, bike facilities, and transit services in both towns.
Information from the public meetings on the "Study" are available online. Including presentations, exhibits and handouts. Click here to view the web site.
Send us your bike walk related news and time permitting, we'll do our best to post it.
