The article states that Town Manager Garry Brumback said the the design may take up to a year to complete and the construction will take even longer.
The proposal that was approved on December 9th will cost approximately $159,500 for a consulting firm to design the new sections of the path. The state will finance 80% of the project, while Plainville and Southington will pay 20%. However, the Farmington Valley Trails Council may pick up 10% of the cost.
