The Lawrence Planning Board unanimously approved the proposal by Bristol-Myers Squibb to build a section of the Lawrence Hopewell Trail along the perimeter of their Lawrenceville campus. The trail section, about 2,500 feet in length, will run  from Carson Road Woods, inside the treeline, down Province Line Road, to the edge of the company’s property near Route 206.

The route will weave its way inside the trees that border the property and feature some undulations and curves, said John Murray, the BMS director of  facilities operatoins and LHT board member. “We didn’t want to build a route that was pancake flat and straight so we put is some curves and terrain changes. We think riders will have fun on this section,” he said.

COnstruction is expected to begin later this spring and take approximately 6-8 weeks, he said.
