NEW – The public comment period for the DRAFT Report closed on March 13th. Comments are currently being addressed, and a final report will be published shortly.

Where should the Naugatuck River Greenway (NRG) Trail be developed between Torrington and Thomaston?

The NRG Trail Thomaston to Torrington Routing Feasibility Study is being  conducted to answer that question. Since 2018, study partners have investigated environmental conditions and potential trail route options in the corridor, and talked with stakeholders and the public to help determine a preferred route for the NRG trail. The goal of the study is to identify a single preferred route for the NRG Trail through field investigation and public and stakeholder engagement, and to develop project phasing with cost estimates in preparation for future funding opportunities.
