Video update from Bluffside Farm trail and bridge construction

in Newport/News

Resident Engineer Jeremy Dean provides an update on trail construction progress at VLT’s Bluffside Farm, in Newport.

In this video, the helical piles that will support a bike path over Scott’s Cove are all installed and leveled, and some tricky bedrock that got in the way of a portion of the gravel path was tackled.

Background: This fall and next spring they will be building a bridge across Scotts Cove and a 3/4-mile gravel path that will connect a trail in downtown Newport with a lakeside trail that goes toward the Canadian border.

This trail will be open to walkers, runners, bikers, and skiers.

This video was shot by the Vermont Land Trust. To learn more, visit:
