Brutus officials pass resolution to construct Trolley Connection Trail in Cayuga County

Officials in the town of Brutus have passed a resolution to begin funding the Trolley Connection Trail in Cayuga County.

At a special meeting Monday evening, Brutus Town Supervisor Jim Hotaling met with several councilors to discuss the project, which would create a 10-foot-wide, mile-long trail in the town and the village of Weedsport.

The Trolley Connection Trail would ultimately connect the Centreport Aqueduct Park in Brutus to the West Shore Trail in Weedsport, which continues to the town of Elbridge and beyond. It would also pass by Weedsport Jr.-Sr. High School and the Weedsport Public Library, potentially providing over 1,600 residents an alternate route to employment, stores and services.
