The Town has submitted a grant application to the State's Bike Trails program.
This project is a collaborative effort of two communities: the Town of Braintree and the Town of Randolph. The trail will run from Belcher Park northerly, cross North Street, continue along the abandoned railroad bed, and terminate approximately 100 yards north of Teed Drive towards the Braintree border. In Braintree, engineering and site plans will be developed for a trail that will begin at the Randolph line (the Cochato River) and traverse an undeveloped landscape to join with an abandoned railroad spur that leads to soccer fields and the entrance/exit onto Washington St. in Braintree.
In Randolph the project consists of implementing the second phase of a trail network outlined in the Town's Open Space and Recreation Plan. The trail will run from Pleasant Street northerly, cross North Street, continue along the abandoned railroad bed, and terminate approximately 100 yards north of Teed Drive. The proposed length is 1.4 miles. On the southern terminus, the trail will connect with a 1/4 mile segment constructed during the Summer of 2006. Therefore, the proposed trail will be 1.7 miles in length in Randolph, and continue into Braintree.
