Proposed bike/pedestrian path gains support in Salem
Earlier this week, Backus presented selectmen with several alternatives for the path. The board unanimously backed a plan that will run along the Route 28 corridor rail bed from the Windham line and cross the intersection at Range Road.
From there, the path will continue on the side of the rail bed away from Route 28 for a portion of the way to the Old Rockingham Road intersection.
Depending upon available funds, the path could continue to the Main Street intersection.
Board Chairman Everett McBride said he did not support the Old Rockingham Road alternative, which would have been the least expensive option, because of the potential impact on the neighborhood.
Selectman James Keller said his major issue with the overall proposal is the impact the project will have on traffic on the Range Road intersection. Backus said the pedestrian crossing measures at the intersection will drop its level of service.
