Pop-up bike path surveys to help with future decisions


GROTON, Conn. - The Town of Groton and the Southeastern Connecticut Council of Governments (SCCOG) will be conducting a short-term demonstration of bicycle route wayfinding signs on a route connecting the Naval Submarine Base and the Gold Star Bridge path. This temporary "pop-up" project began May 11 and will be removed May 24. Groton residents and visitors are encouraged to try out the route, which largely uses the paths found along Route 12 and Pleasant Valley Road.

During this period, project sta and volunteers will be on hand on Saturdays to administer surveys to bicyclists and walkers using the route. The Town and SCCOG will use the information gleaned from the surveys to inform future decisions about how to serve walkers and bicyclists in Groton and nearby municipalities.

This project is being conducted as part of the SCCOG Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. If you have any questions about SCCOG, the plan, or this project, we invite you to call or e-mail Katherine Rattan at (860) 889-2324 or krattan@seccog.org.

If language assistance is needed, contact SCCOG at (860) 889-2324,oce@seccog.org.
