The Bay State Greenway, a seven-corridor, 742-mile statewide system of bicycle routes, is a key component of MassDOT's GreenDOT policy and part of the Healthy Transportation Compact. MassDOT at the annual Massachusetts Moving Together Pedestrian and Bicycling Conference in fall 2010 announced the “Bay State Greenway Priority 100 Miles,” or the “BSG 100” to advance the Bay State Greenway implementation.
The Bay State Greenway network includes both on-road routes as well as off-road shared-use paths. In recognition of the utility and attractiveness of shared-use paths in serving bicyclists of all ages and ability levels, MassDOT’s proposal for the Bay State Greenway is intended to maximize the use of shared-use paths. The Bay State Greenway as a whole includes approximately 200 miles of existing shared-use paths, along with 300 additional miles of proposed shared-use paths. Because this is such a large amount of new shared-use paths, MassDOT has identified the highest priority shared-use path projects: 100 miles of new paths the BSG 100, that would make additional connections to urban centers, extend existing paths, and maximize the transportation network.
During 2011 Bay State Bike Week, MassDOT released “Bicycling in Massachusetts” detailing our commitment to bicycling with the Bay State Greenway and BSG 100. "Bicycling in Massachusetts" will provide a tool partners in our towns/cities, regional planning agencies and advocacy partners to use to communicate and spur implementation of the Bay State Greenway.
