I get the value of complaining here. But if you aren’t also contacting your councilperson and the mayor’s office about this, you’re wasting a valuable opportunity. They can make this stop, and they care a lot about what cyclists want right now.

Picture from Yale. This is a Public Works truck driving on the Junction Hollow Trail today, at the soccer fields. Someone plowed the trail!

Every time you see a vehicle on the trail, please file a report. I don’t come through there regularly so I won’t see it, but multiple complaints are likely the only way to get anything done.

Sorry, Erin, that’s why I went back and deleted my comment.

I agree we want them plowing the trail, but not using it as a shortcut.

People should call 311 when they see trucks on the trail and also contact their councilperson and mayor’s office to complain. We can get this stopped. We just have to complain enough so somebody finally sighs, picks up the phone, and tells them to.

can anyone who is down here frequently give an update on the state of people driving on the trail?

I saw tracks that went straight through the soccer fields. Not a maintenance truck I am sure.

I encounter a lot of what I’m assuming is construction related traffic, unmarked personal vehicles mostly in the neighborhood of the dirt ramp by the Flyover that goes down to Second that is currently being dug up, they park under the flyover and I followed them outbound towards the Greenfield lot after their shift. There was another vehicle parked near the wood ramp, I’m assuming it belongs to one of the construction workers who have been at the corner of Bates & Second Ave.

An Enterprise box truck was driving slowly outbound on the trail around 640pm. Driven by two guys in high vis gear. I yelled from the sidewalk along second ave, what are you doing, the passenger replied “working”.
