Trail Extension

The East Haven Land Trust gave the East Haven Town Team of the Shoreline Greenway Trail permission to route our trail through land trust property known as the Bradford Preserve. East Haven Town Team members accessed Federal/State grant funds to begin the design and permit phase of this trail section. Once the design and permit phases are finished, construction of a half-mile long main pedestrian Trail across the Preserve will commence. When completed the trail will connect The East Haven section of the shoreline (Cosey Beach Avenue) to our trail at D. C. Moore School.
