Wilton working with Norwalk to oversee river valley trail construction

The trail has had various additions through its construction phases. The final leg of the planned 30-mile stretch of recreational path beginning in Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk and traversing north through areas of Wilton up to Danbury was agreed upon in a $2.9 million bid late last year. Friends of NRVT will be responsible for construction management during the building of the project and trail management once it is completed. The trio reached a comprehensive management plan mutually agreed upon by all parties, LoMonte said. Under the cooperation agreement, Norwalk and Wilton would have the ability to observe parts of the trail not in their jurisdiction for oversight during the construction phase, LoMonte said. The project is slated to break ground this spring.
