Trail Name: Hop River State Rail Trail
Trail Conditions: Improving
Observations/Information: A bridge has been planned for the Hop River trail over Rt. 316 in Andover since 2002, but has been delayed due to a dispute between the contractor and the state, according to published reports.
The Hartford Courant reported that the logjam has been broken, and the first section of the bridge has been delivered with more sections to be delivered next week with installation to follow. This is good news indeed, so people will no longer have to slid down the embankment, or detour onto the road.
