Part of rail bed paved for bicyclists


Sections of an old rail bed in Malden have been paved, as part of a path that will eventually allow bicyclists to ride from the Mystic River in Everett to Nahant Beach. Work to regrade the Northern Strand Community Trail, also called the Bike to the Sea Trail , began in Malden and Everett in July, and paving was done in early August. The paving work was done by D & R General Contracting of Melrose, which was awarded the $440,000 contract by the Malden Redevelopment Authority in June.
