Description

The Farmington Canal Trail is great, but getting to it is very dangerous. We refer to the portion of Treadwell Street from the intersection with Leeder Hill Road to the Canal Trail trailhead as "suicide alley". There is no sidewalk on either side of the street. Too many drivers drive too fast, and the road is way too narrow where it crosses a small stream.
Mather Street, from Martin Terrace westward, is equally dangerous, with no sidewalk. The area of Waite Street that traverses the lakes is a lovely place to walk, but also dangerous. Again, no sidewalks.
Whitneyville would be a lot nicer if there were continuous sidewalks on all of the streets. Our taxes are absurdly high (by far, our largest single monthly expense) and we can't help wondering what we are paying for.
