photo looking north toward planned Laird Campus spurThose who have been out Creek Road lately have seen the big construction equipment and the large (interstate-like) gouge out of the woods at the S-curve next to one of the railroad abutments.  All this signals that after having been planned well over a decade ago, the multi-use Pomeroy Trail is now under serious construction.  It will connect Creek Road for cyclists, runners, and other pedestrians all the way to Newark’s Hall Trail, which runs parallel to the Amtrak lines at the south end of central Newark.  Here’s how things looked today from the northern terminus of the Pomeroy Trail to the park at the corner of Paper Mill Road and Cleveland Avenue.
