East Longmeadow Redstone Trail Ribboncutting, September 9, 2010 U.S. Representative Richard E. Neal joined MassDOT, state and local officials today in a ribbon-cutting to celebrate completion of the East Longmeadow “Redstone Rail Trail.”

MassDOT constructed the shared use path along the abandoned Boston & Maine Railroad corridor between Maple Street and Denslow Road.  Congressman Neal helped to secure $1,077,000 in federal transportation funding for the project.

The East Longmeadow Redstone Rail Trail project will provide valuable local transportation and recreation benefits for residents and visitors throughout the community. With its ample connections to neighborhoods, shopping, work places and recreational parks, the project will provide improved mobility and opportunities for active, healthy transportation.

The trail is located immediately adjacent to businesses representing over 3,500 workers and offers convenient access to 90 percent of the area's retail establishments.

The East Longmeadow High School has direct access to the trail from its athletic fields, offering students improved access to school by foot and by bike.
