Cleanup June 4th

Friends of the Tri-Community Greenway will sponsor a clean-up day on parts of the railway right-of-way on June 4th, as part of National Trails Day. Volunteers will meet at the parking lot on the south side of Walgreens on Main Street, Stoneham at 9:00 am.  The morning’s clean-up work will start behind Stop & Shop on Williams Street and move towards Montvale Avenue.


Volunteers from the community are  welcome.  Proper footwear, pants, long-sleeved shirts and gloves are urged as there may be poison ivy on parts of the path.    We will have bags and some gloves but volunteers are urged to bring their own equipment such as rakes, hoes, loppers, etc. Please label them with your name to make sure everyone gets their stuff back. 

For more information,  contact the Friends at tricommunitygreenway@gmail.com.  

Your Opinion Matters - Vote for Greenway Amenities 

With construction around the corner, we are starting to think about life with a Greenway!  It will be great to have a path off street for our children to go to school and a beautiful place to walk, jog or bike but we can do more. Tell us what you would like to see added after the Greenway is built.

Greenway Next Steps 

A number of people have asked about the next steps for the Greenway.  MassDOT is targeting August 2016 to put the project out to bid. There are a few steps needed to get there.  

Stoneham and Woburn have their parts of the project complete.  In Wichester, the Mass DEP is addressing an appeal to the Winchester Conservation Commission's Order of Conditions.  It is expected to issue a new order in May.  Then Winchester can move forward with its construction easements.  Once that is complete, MassDOT can put the project out to bid.  The contractor that wins the bid will then make up a schedule for construction next year.  With a few exceptions (such as avoiding constructing next to schools during the school year), they can decide how to proceed and whether to start in Winchester and move towards Stoneham or vice versa.  Most of the construction should be done in a single season (approx April to November).

History


The Tri-Community Greenway, will bring open recreational space to Stoneham, Woburn and Winchester. The Stoneham portion will be located on a right of way of the Stoneham Branch of the Boston & Lowell (later the Boston & Maine and MBTA) railroad, which stopped passenger service in 1958. This linear park will create a place to bike, walk and enjoy nature in the heart of our community.
