Alternatives for Bennington-Williamstown Bike Path Idea
Residents on both sides of the state line Wednesday will have a chance to learn about an idea for a bicycle path linking Bennington to Williamstown, Mass., and, perhaps even, someday, Lanesborough, Mass.
It will be some time before the Ashuwilticook Rail Trail is extended in Massachusetts from Adams through North Adams to link with a crosstown trail set to break ground in Williamstown next year.
And it will be years before a similar path could be built in Southwestern Vermont.
But that proposed journey of 35 miles takes a lot of steps, even before shovels go in the ground.
And on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m., the Bennington County Regional Commission will host an online presentation to look at possible routes for a path that takes advantage of a trolley route that operated in the area in the first decades of the 20th century.
