Back Bay Alternative Transportation Study Public Meeting

Friends –

We are nearing completion of the Back Bay Alternative Transportation Study, so it’s time that we got back together to talk about the findings. As a reminder, we are evaluating these five alternatives for their impacts on traffic and other issues:

  • The Back Bay Refuge Trail: a shared-use path from Lago Mar to Sandbridge and then to the Refuge
  • The Sigma Trail: our working name for a shared-use path from Sigma (where Sandbridge Rd and New Bridge Rd intersect) along Sandbridge Road to Sandbridge and then to the Refuge
  • A shuttle service from the future Refuge Visitor Contact Station and perhaps beyond, to the Refuge
  • Improved canoe and kayak launch sites on both sides of Back Bay
  • A water taxi service across Back Bay



The Draft Report is complete … except for getting your thoughts about the findings.

We also will do an online survey for those who cannot attend. You will be able to get to it after November 4.



Plan to come to the public meeting, and bring your friends and neighbors. The meeting will be November 4th from 6-7:30 pm at Red Mill Elementary School.
