The Swampscott Rail Trail project has met a significant milestone! The Town’s engineering firm, Stantec, has utilized the data they’ve collected over the previous months to layout the location of the trail within the utility corridor.

There will be a presentation of that alignment for trail neighbors on Thursday, April 12 (7:00p in the Swampscott Senior Center). At that meeting, neighbors will be able to see where the trail will run exactly and how it relates to neighboring properties. The meeting will be broken up into two pieces: 1) presentation of the alignment and explanation of details by Stantec and 2) forum portion where you can then see the trail alignment plans close up on boards and ask questions of the engineering team.

The trail alignment is a precursor to the preliminary design review which means this particular phase will not include design details.
