04 – What is the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail?

Answer

It is a proposed multi-use recreational trail and alternative transportation corridor along the former Lowell Secondary railroad line. This 25-mile Lowell-to-Framingham rail line opened in 1871 and operated for over 100 years. The right of way passes through Lowell, Chelmsford, Westford, Carlisle, Acton, Concord, Sudbury and Framingham. The name ΓÇ£Bruce FreemanΓÇ¥ was chosen for the northernmost seven miles of the trail, and towns further south have generally adopted the same name for their sections of the trail.
