Groundhogs Displaced by Busway Moved from Cemetery

Aug 18th, 2013 | By | Category: Wildlife

Fairview Cemetery in New Britain has long been home to groundhogs, but now that the “CT Fastrak” busway is under construction in the graveyard, the project — run by the state — has agreed to reimburse the city government for a trap and release program.

CT Fastrak is a $567 million plan to build a 9.4-mile rapid busway between New Britain and Hartford.

On Wednesday night, the Common Council voted unanimously to approve relocating the groundhogs that have been displaced before they did any damage after moving over to the cemetery, according to the New Britain Herald.
