Governor Deval Patrick is moving forward with funding to support the design of a multi-use trail on the former Boston & Maine Railroad corridor in Wakefield and Lynnfield.

This first stage of the project will design a multi-use path along 4.4 miles beginning near Galvin Middle School on Main Street in Wakefield and continuing through Lynnfield and the Reedy Meadow to the Peabody town line.  The path will connect residential neighborhoods, commercial and recreational areas, schools, the Reedy Meadow National Natural Landmark, and the MBTA station in Wakefield.  

MassDOT will work with the communities of Wakefield and Lynnfield to initiate the funding and develop the necessary parameters for the project design.  Community officials are working with the MBTA, rail corridor owners, on a long term lease.   Learn more about MassDOT's commitment to healthy transportation alternatives.
