View Peters Brook Greenway - Approximate Route in a larger map
Started in July of 2010, this $3.6 million project will be an extension of the Peters Brook Greenway that runs through Somerville and will one day provide a connection to Bridgewater-Raritan High School on Garretson Road in Bridgewater. The primary reason behind this project is to provide a safe crossing over Rts 202/206 that is NOT provided at the Somerville Circle or any other place within a reasonable distance.
More pictures of the project after the jump.

|Hopefully there are plans to clean up the gravel and prevent crashes leading up to the pole on this downhill stretch. Lights from oncoming cars could blind cyclists making them unaware of the pole at night.|
|Another telephone pole in the trail!|

|Currently the trail terminates about 150 feet from the Somerville Shopping Center just to the south.|
