Eversource is doing powerline improvements and the Paugussett Trail is closed on the southside of Independence Dr and north to Constitution Blvd North.

Hikers can bypass the closure to continue their hike uninterrupted. After crossing Rt 108 (Shelton Ave), northbound hikers should continue  on the Shelton Lakes Rec Path where the Paugussett Tr normally turns left off the Rec Path. Follow the Rec Path to Constitution Blvd North, then turn left and follow Constitution Blvd North to rejoin the Paugussett Tr under the Eversource powerlines. See attached map for reference.

This closure is expected to last through June and possibly longer.
