Benefits


Community Benefits
  • Trails make our communities more livable and desirable
  • Trails improve tourism and civic involvement
  • Trails provide opportunities for fitness and activity for mental and physical health
Transportation Benefits:
  • The project is a significant benefit to the surface transportation system because it provides a facility for people to walk and bike in an area where significant highway congestion exists.
  • The trail helps reduce congestion on the road: as an example, many people use the trail to get to a downtown area for meeting, lunch and work.
  • The trail provides safer connection for walkers, bicyclists and people in wheelchairs to get where they need or want to go.
Impact on the Community
  • People have said this trail is "one of the best things that have happened to the region"
  • The existing trails are used heavily throughout the day. There is a noted increase in traffic on the Hands Across the Merrimack Bridge and construction workers noted they were seeing 20-30 people using the Piscataquog immediately after the hard pack was down.
  • This project will serve the people in the entire region and be an attraction to in and out of state vacationers
