Keene closes in on connecting city pathways
The Roundhouse T Phase II trail is the last piece of a project initially funded in 1997, said Kürt Blomquist, Keene Public Work Director.
Where all the old railway tracks converge is the missing piece of the city trail system, he said.
The federal government requires the easement be permanent, Blomquist said.
In July, federal officials voted to consolidate certain federal accounts that fund these types of alternative transportation projects, Blomquist said.
Keene officials have an aggressive time frame to keep to secure the federal funds, Blomquist said, that is why the trail needs to be specified and the easement acquired.
Blomquist said he anticipates federal funding for these types of projects would be made available through other programs in the future, though, competition for these alternative transportation projects would increase because of the decreased funding overall.
