07 – Will Sudbury’s rail trail become heavily used like the Minuteman Bikeway in Cambridge, Arlington, Lexington and Bedford?
The Minuteman Bikeway has become a very popular and heavily used rail trail. It runs through a heavily populated area and provides a direct route in and out of the center city. The usage of the rail trail in Sudbury will probably be less because our area is less densely populated and farther separated from dense urban areas. The trail will likely have some use as a commuting route, but the destinations along the trail are fewer than for the Minuteman Trail. We do anticipate that the trail will provide a route to bicycle or walk from many homes to the shopping and recreational areas. The trail will provide a means for getting to the railroad commuter station in West Concord.
