Jo and I walked the Esplanade tonight for the first time in a few months. The MTA is starting preparation for installation of the “walk bridge project”. A state and federal government approved project to improve the train bridge over the Norwalk River. The entire Esplanade has been mowed on both sides, presumably to allow trucks and machinery access to the train tracks. At the end, near the bridge, large areas have been cleared, including some trees that Herons have typically roosted in.
There are still a lot of birds feeding on bugs over the water treatment tanks. And of course there are the expected birds in the river. But it’ll be interesting to see what happens to this site once construction kicks in full tilt.
