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

The NRG Trail Thomaston to Torrington Routing Study is underway providing information to answer that question. Study partners are looking at all potential trail route options and environmental conditions in the corridor, and talking to stakeholders and the public to help detemine a preferred route. 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.

Public Information Meetings

The project was presented to the public in a series of informational meetings in project communities.  Residents were encouraged to come hear about the project, review potential NRG trail routes, and offer feedback to the project team.
