•Lynnfield Awarded $200,000 MassTrails Grant For Rail Trail Design Costs.

Most recently, Lynnfield and MassDOT have worked collaboratively in phasing the project design and construction into two parts.

>The first phase is nearing 75% design and will be submitted to MassDOT within the next few weeks to begin review.
This first phase is proposed from Nichols Lane in Peabody to Ford Avenue in Lynnfield. The project team will seek to connect the trail to both the Lynnfield High School and Lynnfield Middle School campuses and athletic facilities with this phase.
>Lynnfield remains hopeful the first segment can realize construction funding as early as FY26.

Phase 2
design from Ford Avenue through Ready Meadow to Fosters Lane in Wakefield, will continue in parallel with efforts on Phase 1.

​“We remain equally committed to bringing both phases of this project to completion. Collectively, we felt that a phased approach will present Lynnfield with an opportunity to begin using the trail sooner than originally planned,” said Town Administrator Robert Dolan.

   It's all about fun and recreation...close to home.
