Letter of Support for Bedford Minuteman Bikeway Extension

This petition had 425 supporters

Please construct the Bedford Minuteman Bikeway Extension project as soon as possible. The Bikeway Extension would offer substantial transportation and recreation benefits, including:

  • extending the Minuteman Bikeway 2.2 miles out to the Concord town line
  • progressing toward an eventual connection to the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail
  • providing safe bicycle access to schools, neighborhoods, and conservation areas in Bedford

We greatly appreciate the thought that has gone into intersection design and the connection between the existing Minuteman Bikeway and the extension. The sidepath connecting the old and new segments will provide a safe, comfortable riding and walking experience for all users of the path. The underpass crossing at Route 62 (Concord Rd) is an excellent design, providing much safer travel for path users than an at-grade crossing would provide.

We are eager to see the Minuteman Bikeway Extension completed!
