You won’t find Westport listed on the official Connecticut Greenway Council map.
Google shows 1 result for the search term “Westport CT greenway.” It’s for the official town website. Drilling down on the site, you see a map titled “Action Areas.” It shows 3 “Proposed Gateway Trails”: along the shore; up Riverside and Imperial Avenues, then north to Weston; abutting the Merritt Parkway.
But very alert “06880” reader Wally Meyer noticed a little green “Greenway” sign near the train station in Saugatuck, and another on Green’s Farms Road.
The Greenway is a cooperative effort of East Coast states. Running from Calais, Maine to the Florida keys, it’s designed for non-motorized transit — bikes, walking, whatever.
So what’s up with the Westport Greenway? Is it official? In the works? Rogue?
Inquiring minds — and potential bikers and walkers — want to know.
