Feasibility Study - Multi-Use Trail Connector

This feasibility study is for a multi-use trail connector from the Columbia Greenway Rail Trail at Women's Temperance Park north past I-90 and connect to Southampton Road (MA-10/US-202) via the entrance to Westfield Intermediate School and Southampton Road Elementary School. The study required public outreach and involvement through several meetings and a survey; it identified design criteria and trail route alternatives; it determined final trail route alternatives' plans and costs; it recommends a preferred design alternative; and produced a final feasibility study:


PLEASE NOTE: As indicated in the final report, further study is required for the connection of the multi-use trail from the Lockhouse Road area to Southampton Road.

This project is funded in part by MassTrails, administered by the Department of Conservation and Recreation.
