Town of Lynnfield issued a Press Release :May 25, 2022 on the Town website: News & Notices page.
Lynnfield-Wakefield Rail Trail Status Update.
Originally, construction was slated to begin in the Spring of 2022. The project has had significant design delays due to environmental permitting and design challenges, the project is now slated for a construction year of 2026. The main design issues revolve around the construction of the elevated boardwalk in the Reedy Meadow, and addressing the requirements of the various environmental regulatory agencies. Currently, the design effort focuses around completing a refined hydraulic study of the flood elevations in Reedy Meadow. This updated hydraulic study will ideally allow the length of the boardwalk to be reduced. In parallel, the geotechnical aspects of the site are being additionally investigated as requested by the MassDOT geotechnical section. Due to the environmental restrictions of the meadow, work has been slowly progressing. Once the hydraulic study is complete, the project team will move on to environmental permitting. No further schedule slide is anticipated.
