End of Tuttle Place (just off Tuttle Road, near Newfield St.)
Mayor Daniel T. Drew, and Director of Public Works William Russo will perform a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the newly completed 1.75 mile “Tuttle Loop” section of the Westlake and Mattabesset Bike and Walking Trail (see section colored in purple on the map below). The new section means that the entire trail system from Middle Street to Tuttle Place is now 5.0 miles.
The Complete Streets Committee of Middletown encourages all residents who support and enjoy improved walking and bicycling facilities to attend the event. Citizen presence will demonstrate interest for other planned and to-be-planned improvements to Middletown’s pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure.
To reach the ribbon cutting, drive north on Newfield Street toward Cromwell. But just ¼ mile before reaching Cromwell, turn left on Tuttle Road. Drive ¼ mile to Tuttle Place on the right. Park along Tuttle Place where the bike lanes are painted (even though parking is usually not permitted in this location). To view on Mapquest, click http://www.mapquest.com/#d09a9e124023b61d66eb6be
