Somerville bike pathway to expand

Somerville’s Community Path, a paved trail for cyclists and walkers, will grow by nearly 2 miles, continuing along much of the length of the Green Line extension in Somerville, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation announced Wednesday.

Transit advocates say the 1.9 miles of new pathway will serve as a vital link to connect existing stretches of pavement that provide safer, off-street pathways for cyclists, walkers, and joggers, but remain divided by stretches of busy roadway. Now, they say, the extension along the Green Line will knit communities in Somerville together, and will provide Somerville residents with easy access to Boston.
