We are pleased to report progress on construction of the new boardwalk and new trail section on the east-side "Wilton Loop". The work will connect existing sections of the loop to Twin Oak Lane.
Trail builder Timber & Stone LLC has made the following progress to date:
Framing of the 200-foot boardwalk is complete.
Excavation, sub-surfacing, and surfacing of the new trail to connect the boardwalk with Twin Oak Lane is complete.
The boardwalk still requires a deck and railings. Completion is dependent on obtaining black locust lumber of sufficient quantity and quality, and also on favorable weather. If both lumber mills and Mother Nature cooperate, Timber & Stone hopes to complete the boardwalk by mid-January. The onset of heavy snow could delay completion to the spring.
The new boardwalk and trail was made possible by generous donations from the community, and in particular from Wilton Woman's Club. We are grateful.
