Middletown’s desire to become more bike- and pedestrian-friendly was jump-started when the Mid-State Regional Planning Agency selected Middletown to receive $800,000 in federal transportation funds for construction of a 3 mile multi-use trail from downtown, through Wesleyan University, adjacent to Long Lane and Long Hill Road to the soccer fields on Long Hill Road just north of Randolph Road. The Jonah Center is the “project advocate” for this trail and will remain deeply involved in the details of its design and construction, once funds are released.
The proposed route of this trail has changed since the projected originated. Now, instead of following Long Lane north of Wadsworth Street, the City is proposing to follow Wadsworth Street from Long Lane to Pine Street, and then north on Pine Street to connect with the campus.
