02 – What is the status of the rail trail studies in the towns along the proposed trail?


The Central Transportation Planning Staff (CTPS) of the Boston Metropolitan Planning Organization has completed three feasibility studies for the trail. Combined Phases I and II were studied in 1987. An update to this study covering Concord and Sudbury was done in 2003. In October 2006, CTPS completed a study of Phase III. The conclusion of all of the studies is that a rail trail is feasible. Preliminary Environmental and Engineering Assessments of the proposed Bruce Freeman rail trail have been completed for Acton, Concord, and the Phase II right of way in Sudbury.
