Extension Work Underway

 

This week work has begun on upgrading the Rail Trail from Switch Road to East Andover.  Peter Crowell and his crew have begun the grading, rolling and application of stone dust (hard pack) to the newest section of the Rail Trail in Andover, as outlined in the previous news articles from August and April (below).  This extension work is expected to be completed by the middle of next week

 

The Friends of the Northern Rail Trail (Merrimack County) have anticipated this newest section since last year and are excited about adding over 2 miles to the existing trail.   However, trail users are asked to wait until rain has fallen on the trail to allow the stone dust to pack more completely.  Hopefully this will be by the middle of the month.
