Salem group continues push to raise money for bicycle path
Selectman Stephen Campbell said the extension does not mean the bike path group is unable to raise the matching funds.
“I think it is the right thing to do to help this group out,” said Campbell.
Hickey said he has spoken to bike path group members and they plan to be before selectmen within the next month with an $85,000 donation.
Earlier this winter, Greg Backus of VHB Engineering presented selectmen with several alternatives for the bike path. The board unanimously backed a plan that will run along the Route 28 corridor rail bed from the Windham line and cross the intersection at Range Road.
From there, the path will continue on the side of the rail bed away from Route 28 for a portion of the way to the Old Rockingham Road intersection.
Depending upon available funds, the path could continue to the Main Street intersection.
