Two I-295 bridges in town are being rebuilt. Freeport's Town Council recommends that each bridge include a 12-foot multi-purpose path to safely accommodate walkers, wheelchairs, runners, and cyclists passing in both directions.
Achieving safe passage for people on foot or wheels requires the Town to contribute funding to this project. On March 9, 2021 Freeport residents voted 4 to 1 in favor of a municipal bond to decide to fund the addition of 12-foot multi-purpose paths on both bridges.
Why Connect Freeport?
Supporting active living — when residents can safely walk, ride, or run to work, school, and recreation areas — benefits Freeport.
Community members can walk and ride safely with infrastructure designed for them, and accessible pathways will allow more people in Freeport to engage in active activities.
Freeport can attract new residents and visitors when it's easier to walk, ride, or run to everyday destinations and recreation opportunities.
Active modes of transportation—like walking and biking—reduce Freeport's carbon footprint.
