City Council Approves Funding to Connect MRG to Northern Rail Trail!

Downtown Tunnel

Today’s Valley News reports that the Lebanon City Council has approved funding for “replacement of the former rail tunnel under downtown” – wonderfully good news for our hopes of linking the Mascoma River Greenway to the Northern Rail Trail, as well as providing easy, safe access to the MRG from downtown!  Bravo! And so appropriate on the Solstice: Light at the end of the tunnel!

Update 1/18/2018: The Valley News report was not as nuanced as the City Council decision: The Council approved funding for a downtown connection of the Northern Rail Trail to the Mascoma River Greenway. Whether that connection is a repair of the tunnel or a different separate path through downtown depends on the outcome of engineering studies.
