Bay Colony Rail Trail Project Kicked Off!

On July 23, a misty Thursday afternoon at Red Wing Bay in Needham, the Bay Colony Rail Trail project took an important step toward becoming a reality. In spite of the inclement conditions, twenty people converged on the site to discuss the process and prospects for converting an unused rail corridor to a rail trail.

In attendance were officials from Needham, Dover and Medfield, members from local organizations such as Needham Bikes, Bike Newton, the Newton Bicycle and Pedestrian Task Force, two Massachusetts-based national experts on rail trails, and representatives from state agencies such as Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and The Trustees of Reservations (TTOR).
