FAIRFIELD, CT July 9, 2020 – With summer now upon us, it’s easy to understand how our fellow citizens want to get out and enjoy the warm weather with a walk or bike ride.
The Town of Fairfield Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee, working with the Fairfield Health Department and other Fairfield Town Departments, now has three approved bicycle routes around town. These routes have been marked with signage and, where possible, road lines and “sharrow” markings. In addition to the bike routes, the Town of Fairfield Department of Public Works has installed eight bicycle repair stations and pumps around town.
The bike routes and repair/pump stations were made possible through a grant from the Connecticut Department of Public Health which was obtained by the Fairfield Health Department. Grant funds also provided the opportunity to purchase additional bike racks which have been installed at the beaches as well as Lake Mohegan.
