      That's an interesting tidbit. The dam between the Upper and Lower
      Mystic lakes is another possible "mystic crossing".

      It's 300 feet the short way, but 3 miles the long way because you're not
      allowed to use the dam. The big challenge here is cultural. Wealthy
      homes and a boat club are on one side. The other side is a parking lot
      that attracts people with much lower incomes.

      Perhaps the design of the new dam could anticipate a pedestrian
      crossing, even if it is not immediately open to the public.
