The current Yankee Doodle Bike Path Committee was formed by a vote of the 2013 Spring Town Meeting. The goal of the committee is to complete the Yankee Doodle Bike Path from Billerica Memorial High School to the Billerica/Bedford town line, linking up with the existing Bedford Narrow Gauge Rail Trail, which connects with the Minuteman Bikeway.
The idea of the Yankee Doodle Bike Path dates back to the 1980s.
At the 2013 Fall Town Meeting $200,000.00 was appropriated to fund the engineering and preliminary design of the Yankee Doodle Bike Path. Soon VHB (Vanasse, Hangen Brustlin, Inc.) was contracted for professional services for an Alternatives Analysis and the bike path so called 25% Design. As of July 2015, MassDOT determined that the project is eligible for Federal funding. The projected date of completion for the 25% Design Submittal is December 2015. Three more phases follow, allowing for public hearings and thorough preparation before construction. For a detailed, up-to-date description of the project, please go to the DPW Projects page!
