The House Transportation Committee needs to hear from Vermonters about supporting a new bridge over the Winooski River in East Montpelier to connect the Cross Vermont Trail. They're considering appropriating $100,000 to match a $1 million+ federal funding earmark to build the bridge.
The committee wants to hear from a variety of community people who are vested in this bridge project and in the trail as a whole, to tell them why the Cross Vermont Trail is important and how this bridge and the connected trail will boost economic development.
