See today’s Union Leader, page B1, for great news about rail trail development in greater Manchester.
Three years ago, I wrote about the rail trail that begins at the bridge over the Merrimack River in Manchester, continuing west along the Piscataquog River up to the closed-off trestle over the Piscataquog into Goffstown. I expressed pessimism at the time about any restoration of a pedestrian crossing there.
Well, hush my mouth. Today’s newspaper report says that a new steel bridge will be built alongside the old trestle by the end of this year, thanks to funding from a number of sources. This is great news.
