DSA Tries Out a New Linear Paver for the Farmington Canal Greenway
DSA is hoping to use the linear pavers depicted in the video above for the final stretch of the Farmington Canal Greenway that it is currently designing. Test subject Kai Sakamoto demonstrates that the paver can provide a comfortable riding surface for a standard wide-tire bike.
Although this choice of material is a big improvement over the steel grating that was originally considered for the riding surface, there is still a question of whether the grooves between the pavers might make cycling with thin racing bike tires difficult.
Cyclists, let us know what you think.
Note: those wishing to try out the paver for themselves should visit Kroon Hall at
