Someday the South Shore Trail will be a 14.4 mile trail connectiong the WB&A Trail with the B&A Trail. Someday was originally to be 2002 or even as early as 1999. But it has been stuck at 0.84 miles for several years. The one open section, from the Westfield Annapolis mall to Anne Arundel Medical Center, was recently made an official section of the East Coast Greenway. But work promised long ago, or even less long ago, on the rest of the trail hasn't materialized yet.
As recently as August of 2013, work was to start last summer. But it doesn't appear that it has. At that time the full trail wouldn't be completed until sometime well after 2018. But now, who knows?
Tom Petty was right, the waiting is the hardest part.
