SWRPC has released the final version of the Cheshire Rail Trail South Plan, which aims to address challenges and opportunities along the trail from its intersection with the Ashuelot Rail Trail in Keene through Swanzey, Marlborough, Troy and Fitzwilliam to its end near the Massachusetts State line. The project involved collecting data on existing trail use, conditions and amenities and conducting meetings among municipal and other stakeholders to both share information and consider maintenance, connectivity, safety, and coordinated improvement to the trail. The project resulted in a common vision and 10-year plan for the trail to better inform volunteer groups, local government and regional and statewide transportation planning. You can read the full plan here and check out the project web page here. Below, you can explore the project’s implementation plan, which identifies specific projects along the trial that are high priorities for helping the trail reach its full potential.
