Selectmen get update on Salem-Windham rail trail
Earlier this week, Greg Backus of VHB Engineering met with selectmen to update them on the progress of the Salem-Windham rail trail project.
While the state is mandating that the rail trail tie into the Windham rail trail, Backus said the engineering firm is looking at alternatives to determine the length of the Salem path.
"The study area is essentially from the Methuen town line all the way up to the Windham trail where the pavement begins," said Backus. "It is unlikely to cover that entire area because we have limited funds. The rough study area follows the Route 28 corridor."
The proposed path would be paved and 10-feet wide, according to Backus.
"I think this is a great project," said Selectman Michael Lyons. "I use the Windham/Derry trail two or three times a week in the summer."
