The first leg of the Redding mile is designed, shovel-ready and takes advantage of pre-existing old wood road from construction of the Super 7 corridor, making it easier to link Ridgefield and Danbury. The cost is estimated at $265,000. Three grants have been submitted, with $32,000 raised to date, leaving $232,000 to be raised for construction to begin in 2018.

What’s Next:

  • A decision on the $294,000 Recreational Trail Grant application for the Redding Mile is expected in September or October, pending resolution of the CT State Budget.
