Cape Cod Rail Trail extension from Route 134 in Dennis, west through Yarmouth to Willow Street:
The town of Yarmouth, Dennis and Barnstable are working on extending the rail Trail through Dennis and Yarmouth to Barnstable with a goal of terminating at the Transportation Center in Hyannis. The Towns of Dennis and Yarmouth have prepared a feasibility study on this extension and had public outreach on the project. The project has received good public support in both Dennis and Yarmouth. The design contract has been submitted to the Massachusetts Highway Department (MHD) for review and approval and we hope to begin design of this extension over the next year. Once the design is completed the project will be bid by the MHD, a contractor selected by this agency and constructed according to the design plans in 2010/11. The town of Barnstable is also developing plans for the further extension of the trail through Barnstable from Willow Street to the service road at Route 6, which is also the Claire Saltonstall bike route.
