Hartford Courant reporter Bill Leukhardt shares a piece of good news today on the Southington portion of the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail, which runs from New Haven to Massachusetts.
Right now, the path ends by Curtis Street in Southington, about two miles from the Plainville border. People either turn around and walk back south into Southington, or use streets and sidewalks to cross Plainville to reach the trail, which resumes again in Farmington.
The Southington project is a segment of an ambitious, long-term state effort to bridge a 9-mile gap that spans all of Plainville and small sections of Southington and Farmington. It is the biggest gap in the trail. Southington's Town Council will discuss the project at its meeting tonight.
