Rail-with-Trail Preliminary Feasibility Assessment

rail with trail

The Greater Portland Council of Governments (GPCOG) is currently exploring the feasibility of a Rail-with-Trail project along a 9-mile stretch of unused rail line connecting Portland, Falmouth, Cumberland, and Yarmouth. The four communities turned to PACTS and GPCOG to lead a study exploring the opportunities and challenges of adding an active corridor along the tracks for walkers and bikers. The project is in the exploratory phase.  GPCOG has prepared a Preliminary Feasibility Assessment report which includes project details and input from a December 13, 2017 community meeting in Falmouth.
