With work on "Phase-I" well underway, you can now view photos and details on our new Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SalemNHBikePedCorridor . Progress is almost on schedule with basic construction expected to be completed by late August. A formal "ribbon-cutting" will be in Sept. or Oct. once traffic signals are programmed for safer road crossings.

Construction of "Phase I" started April 4
May 11, 2016
In case you haven't noticed, the project is well underway with American Excavating Corp. working hard to complete the Windham Rail Trail and build the paved 1.1-mile section in Salem. Plans call for the basic work to be completed by August after which our Friends group will be seeking volunteers and businesses to help with amenities and maintenance. Stay tuned and watch the progress!
Construction of "Phase-I" to start this Spring
Jan. 20, 2016
The final $25K in match money from FSBPC was accepted by the Town of Salem on January 19 for a total of over $254K provided to date for the "Phase-I" project. The Salem 1.1-mile section connecting to the Windham Rail Trail (to be completed under the same contract) will be built by American Excavating Corp starting as soon as weather allows. At long last, everyone will see physical work being done -- not just meetings, paperwork, and delays! Stay tuned for an exciting 2016!
