Auburn Trail Update - I have received an inquiry from a Town resident who was confused about the status of the on-going work on the Trail Project; how a portion of the Trail could be opened to the public use; and how … “until all work is completed by the contractor…the trail has to remain closed to the public.” The confusion came about due to the time involved with putting together the articles in the latest newsletter, publishing it and then mailing it out to everyone; and during that time the posting of two reports on the town’s website by the Director of Development in his bi-weekly Town Operations report.
After the newsletter was mailed the Town Board having received notification from the State Department of Transportation of a provision in the State Construction Law, that permits the owner (in this instance the Town) to have a portion of the Trail inspected and upon determination that it is safe for the public’s use to open that portion, took action at their July 9th meeting to open the Main Trail portion of the project to the public and directed the contractor to complete work on the remaining section between Ivory Drive and the Canandaigua/Farmington Town Line Road. The ribbon cutting ceremony occurred on Saturday morning, July 13th, at 9:00 a.m. and was attended by approximately 30 residents and officials. It was great to see how well used the Main Trail Section was that sunny morning.
As of today, July 30th, the contractor has reached the Town Line Road with the trail surface. He next has to complete drainage work along portions of this section, complete work on the two gabion crossings along the trail and complete the restoration of the shoulders of this trail section. It is expected that this last section of the trail will be opened to the public in early August.
I hope that this explanation helps clarify any other confusion that may have existed. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the Trail or any other town project please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315-986-8100 ext. 2
