Northampton Ped Bridge Installation, September 26, 2010 1 The Manhan Rail Trail took a major step forward Sunday as MassDOT contractors used a crane to lift into place a new bridge for cyclists and pedestrians.  The bridge 180 feet in length over Routes 5 and 10 is a key piece of the $3.8 million extension of the Manham Trail in Northampton and Easthampton that will connect with the Norwottuck Rail Trail.

The 2.6 mile trail project under construction begins at Ferry Street in Easthampton and ends at Earle Street in Northampton.

Linking the Manhan Rail Trail with the Norwattuck will expand the existing regional trail network that serves Northampton, Hadley, Amherst and the UMass campus, and Belchertown.

The Manhan Rail Trail expansion project highlights MassDOT's GreenDOT policy and Healthy Transportation Compact, emphasizing healthy transportation options including bicycling, walking and transit.
