Close the Gap
Published on September 10, 2016 by Betsy Hanscom
"I asked my thirteen-year-old grandson to make a video to create awareness about the Eastern Trail and the opportunity to close a 1.6 mile gap in it. This is his take on it.
About ninety thousand people a year enjoy the Eastern Trail for commuting and recreation. The “gap” in it forces people onto roads with little room for pedestrians and cyclists -- making it dangerous. The need for two bridges and leveling the ground has made the cost of completion an estimated $3.8 million – a lot for anyone to think about – especially a young teen. All but $600 thousand has been raised and small to large donations will help.
Once completed, the trail will go from Bug Light in South Portland to Saco, Maine without interruption. It’s a beautiful trail. Your help in the way of donations and spreading the words would be greatly appreciated by thousands."
