Ashuwillticook Rail Trail Extension Construction Progressing Nicely (LISTEN)
The goal of the beloved Ashuwillticook Rail Trail is to eventually extend county-wide; into Connecticut and Vermont is the goal. However, that could take another decade according to Park, Open Space and Natural Resource Program Manager for Pittsfield, Jim McGrath.
McGrath spoke with Slater and Marjo on Friday morning about the rail trail's latest progress.
Slater: This will be the first time the trail actually is within Pittsfield city limits, correct?
Slater: When will the extension be open for use?
Slater: Where will the beginning of the trail be visibly obvious to residents?
Slater: Any changes at the Mall Rd. entrance to accommodate heavier trail traffic?
