Making Fair Haven more pedestrian-friendly


Fair Haven will soon be a lot more pedestrian-friendly.

The town got a state grant from VTrans, and first on the infrastructure improvements plan is to put in a sidewalk. It will connect Second Street to Mechanic Street and cost about $30,000. The town will also apply for more funding in addition to the $15,000 VTrans grant. Town officials say the area is crucial because it is a route that connects the high school with an internal neighborhood and they do not have a bus system.

"Mechanic Street is a relatively narrow street, so there isn't even a lot of shoulder room for kids to walk or bicyclists to go through, so this would help to further that," said Herbert Durfee, the town manager in Fair Haven.

The project will take two to three years to complete.
