Donors, town officials and members of the public are all invited to a groundbreaking Saturday, June 27, of a new section of the Norwalk River Valley Trail’s “Wilton Loop.” It will be extended from Sharp Hill Road to near Twin Oak Lane over the course of this year’s building season.
Those planning to attend the groundbreaking will meet at 10 a.m. in the commuter Park and Ride north of Orem’s Diner on Route 7.
Participants will then get a chance to see what the finished project will look like as they walk together from the commuter lot to the ceremony site along the 1.1 miles that is already completed.
“For those who can,” reads the announcement on NRVT’s website, “the groundbreaking will be followed by a Work Day to help our trail-builder Timber & Stone LLC get off to a flying start on the new sections.”
Volunteers should bring work gloves. Small handsaws, leaf rakes, loppers and pole saws are desirable and welcomed, though not required.
