Fundraising underway to complete next Rail Trail segment
On Tuesday, Trailways spokeswoman Pollyann Winslow said construction on the project’s second phase was underway. The paved recreational trail, which is being constructed on the site of the former Manchester-Lawrence railway corridor, has been in the works for the past several years.
Trailway officials opened the first completed mile of the Londonderry Rail Trail, which stretches from the North Elementary School parking lot to the Exit 5 Park & Ride, in late November.
The trail will pass underneath Interstate 93 and run behind Poor Boy’s diner.
“They’ve done a great job preparing the trail for paving and they stayed within our budget,” project manager Bob Rimol said this week.
Rimol said Londonderry Trailways would need to raise $17,000 to pave the trail segment.
