Nov 18, 2013 No Comments by

Londonderry Trailways invites the public to celebrate the opening of the first completed mile of Rail Trail on Saturday, November 30, 2013 at noon at the trailhead off Sanborn Road at the North Elementary School parking lot.

The celebration will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony and walk on the Rail Trail. Participating in the ceremony are: Londonderry Town Manager Kevin Smith, a representative from the State Department of Resources and Economic Development, State Senator Sharon Carson, Londonderry Commerce and Visitors Center, Rail Trail Project Manager, Bob Rimol and Londonderry Trailways Secretary, John Daley, MD.

The first mile of completed Rail Trail runs from Symmes Drive at Exit 5 to Sanborn Road. The construction project began September 9, 2013. The work, supervised by the Town’s Public Works and Engineering Director Janusz Czyzowski, was done by the Daniel T Ladd Construction Company of Loudon, New Hampshire. The project was completed as scheduled by mid November and came in on budget. The Rail Trail was funded by a Warrant Article passed at the March 12, 2013 election.

Bob Rimol, Project Manager, says, “I hope community members will come out on November 30th for the ribbon-cutting and a walk on the new trail. This is their trail and we want to thank everyone who made this possible, and to enjoy celebrating together!”

The event will be held rain or shine. For more information on the Rail Trail project and other trails in Londonderry please go to the Londonderry Trailways website.
