The Web Site was relocated on May 4, 2000 to 
this Server http://members.fortunecity.com/railtrails/ 
because of severe ongoing problems
 with the following Servers:

Folks that use the new Web address:
are automatically forwarded to this server. 

All E-mail addressed to
is likewise forwarded to the Webmaster
of this Site!

Note that those Web pages still on the Tripod Server at
are still valid (to the Webmaster's knowledge)
despite the absence of any recent updates!

The Webmaster will try to replace the pages of the old sites with 'change of address notices'
 but the importance of updating this new site as well as the 
 sheer size of the old site and the difficulty of making updates
will certainly prolong a very ugly process! 

However, all bookmarks and other references to :
will lead to defective or out of date Web pages!

The Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor is the site of the Blackstone Bike Path, under construction. The RIDOT has completed a 3.1 mile section of trail from Front St. in Lincoln to the Ashton Bridge over the Blackstone River. The remainder of the trail is either under construction or awaiting the design process. The Blackstone Bikeway in RI will extend from the MA border north of Woonsocket to the Pawtucket city line when complete.

This 19.3 mile Canal Towpath will be part of the East Coast Greenway (ECG Section RI-1), a multi-use trail that is planned from Maine to Florida. The East Coast Greenway has recently been selected as one of 15 trails for designation as a Millenium Trail, which should be very helpful in focusing public attention on all of the component trail projects.
