WILTON — The Norwalk River Valley Trail has reached a major fundraising milestone for its WilWalk section of the trail, raising more than the $274,000 goal necessary to release a $1.3-million state construction grant. With these funds now in place, vendor contracting and construction can begin. Trail officials anticipate a start date at the end of the first quarter of 2021.
“Completing WilWalk funding is a major accomplishment for Wilton, the City of Norwalk and the NRVT,” Executive Director Beth Merrill said in a press release. “We are so very grateful to everyone who donated funds both large and small. It will be very exciting to see the construction begin late winter 2021.”
