With these last three posts, this may have just become the most efficient thread on this board.
Is it derailing the thread to comment on the lack of derailing of the thread in a prior exchange? ;)


See the Lynn bike plan here: http://www.cityoflynnoecd.net/documents/community/2019_Lynn Network Plan Report.pdf#page=8

From Western Avenue, there will be two spurs. Main spur follows South Common, Market, and Lynnway to the Lynn Shore Drive circle, where you connect to existing paths. Local spur follows the ROW to Summer and Neptune, possibly Bennett.
Great stuff. Cant wait for this one to be finished. Now, it just needs a really good bike connection from Boston to Everett.

In the image what is the difference between solid lines and dotted lines?

My experience of the trail has been from Wellington Rumney Marsh where the trail changed from blacktop to stone dust (roughly at the end in the word "strand")

Does completion mean being fully paved? Or just that the former railroad right-of-way will be continuously improved ?

There's a pretty good route from downtown to Everett via Charlestown. I rode it two weekends back and found it very easy to navigate Sullivan Square over to the bridge and through to the casino area.

Solid line is the off-street path. Dotted is the on-street and mostly separated cycletrack extension.

Funds would cover paving the crushed stone sections in Revere/Saugus and continuing the path from the Lynn line to basically the Lynn Common. Also bring it from the southern terminus in Everett to the Mystic path system by Gateway Center.

My dream of biking my family to the beach without my wife asking "Are you sure this is right?" grows closer by the day.

Big question is... bridge or gondola to get over to Assembly?
