Granby. With that new pavement, the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail is now almost 21 miles long and one of the finest recreation and commutation facilities in New England. The last small bridge was installed in January, and there are still some paving, fencing, signage and amenities to be installed. As many of you know we have raised and pledged $36,000 to East Granby for the re-designed Salmon Brook Bridge Project which finally went to re-bid on March 11th. Unfortunately it is once again $170,000 over budget. I urge you to send donations to the “Salmon Brook Bridge Fund” c/o our address. We will match contributions one to one up to an amount not yet set by our Board. We must raise the money to allow the town to move forward with the project. Rebidding has proven to be ineffectual. See our Website for more information.
