NRG Thomaston to Torrington Routing Study

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

The NRG Trail Thomaston to Torrington Routing Study is underway 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 through field investigation and public and stakeholder engagement, and to develop project phasing with cost estimates in preparation for future funding opportunities.

The study is being conducted by the BSC Group in partnership with NVCOG, The Northwest Hills Council of Governments (NHCOG), the City of Torrington and the Towns of Litchfield, Harwinton and Thomaston.  The study is being funded by a Responsible Growth and Transit Oriented Development grant from the Connecticut Office of Policy and Management (OPM). 

Public Information Meetings

The project will be presented to the public in a series of informational meetings in project communities.  Residents are encouraged to come hear about the project, review potential NRG trail routes, and offer feedback to the project team.  All meetings will begin at 5:30 pm with maps available for review, and a formal presentation beginning at 6 pm.
