Several years ago a new raised crosswalk on the Farmington Canal Trail was installed at Hazel Street with a positive impact on public safety at this busy crossing for cyclists and pedestrians. We have been waiting several years for the installation of additional raised crossings for the at-grade intersections along the Trail in New Haven and southern Hamden.  The execution of this project has been complicated both by the pandemic and the fact that it is a joint New Haven/Hamden collaboration.

Hamden Town Engineer Stephen White has scheduled a virtual public meeting for the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail Raised Crossings Project. This will be a joint meeting with the City of New Haven as the project spans both Hamden and New Haven. The meeting date is July 13, 2023 at 6pm.

The Town of Hamden and City of New Haven are planning pedestrian and cyclist safety improvements. Improvements include the installation of raised crosswalks along the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail.

  • New Haven Locations: Munson, Division, Thompson, Ivy, Brewster, Bassett Streets and Shelton Ave
  • Hamden Locations: Goodrich, Alling, Dudley, Morse Streets and Hamden Park Dr
