Rail Trail Construction Progress
Due to the collaborative efforts of MELD, Middleton DPW and various Town agencies, the Phase 3 construction between Perkins Road eastward to the Danvers line is now complete! With the exception of the area near the Ipswich River, which requires sidewalk crossing, there are now 2.2 miles of continuous trail, between Essex Street and the Danvers Line. Additionally, Danvers has added a .8 mile extension between Access Road (near Lahey Outpatient Center) to the Middleton line. The extension directly connects to the Middleton Rail Trail.
We continue with the installation of new kiosks, bike racks, bike repair stations and benches on the finished parts of the rail trail.
A separate Middleton Rails to Trails Committee was established by the Town of Middleton to help coordinate activities. That Committee plans to meet quarterly. For additional information, please go to: https://middletonma.gov/397/Rails-to-Trails-Committee
We continue to receive generous donations from individuals and businesses, which are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your generosity!
