A two-mile expansion of the Greenway Trail in Setauket and Port Jefferson Station is set to kick off this spring, according to a report in The Village Times Herald.
The current 1.5-mile trail will be expanded one mile to the east and one mile to the west, so that it will connect Limroy Lane near the East Setauket Post Office on Route 25A all the way to the parking lot on Route 112 near Chereb Lane in Port Jefferson Station.
Kiosks at the both ends are planned for the trail, as well as possible bike racks, according to the report.
Charles McAteer, chairman of Friends of the Greenway, said in an email to The Village Times Herald: "The town lines should not be a barrier to people using this community gem. As we meet persons from other communities we see how connected we truly are and share many of the same goals for improving life on Long Island for our families."
Clearing the way for the project was the completion of the surface excavation at the Lawrence Aviation Superfund site in Port Jefferson Station.
