Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) welcomed the announced release of $800,000, part of a larger release of $11.7 million across the state, which will support the South Windsor Crosstown trail. The grant funding will be released to South Windsor through the Department of Transportation’s state-funded Community Connectivity Grant Program, an infrastructure improvement initiative providing funding for local projects improving safety and accessibility for pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users across the state.

“It’s great news for the South Windsor community to hear of this new funding supporting local outdoor recreation,” said Sen. Anwar. “This grant will support the further development of the cross-town trails, which will not only provide an opportunity for residents to get outside and enjoy South Windsor’s local beauty, but will add alternative transportation options throughout town for walkers, bicyclists and commuters. It will even connect to the Charter Oak Greenway in Manchester, providing even further community connections. I’m grateful to Governor Lamont, the Department of Transportation and the State Bond Commission for supporting our community.”

“These projects help connect people to their communities, promote economic development, create more vibrant town centers, and encourage environmentally friendly transportation options,” Governor Lamont said. “Supporting this program with state dollars is improving the quality of life for towns and cities throughout the state.”

The South Windsor Crosstown Trail, an ongoing project in South Windsor, will upon completion run more than six miles through the town, running north to south and passing through Wapping Park, the South Windsor Land Conservation Trust, Nevers Park and the South Windsor Wildlife Sanctuary.
