The Federal Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA21) offered communities the opportunity to apply for a broad range of “transportation enhancements” to include the creation of multi-use linear trails. Partnering with the Town of Wallingford, our neighbor to the south, using federal funding along with local match, the process of scoping, design and construction of the first trails began. With the need for local oversight came creation of Advisory Committees for each community. To date, Wallingford has created three pedestrian facilities with plans for a fourth reaching to the Meriden town line.
We invite you to enjoy a short tour of our trails, and encourage you to go out and explore them for yourself!
