Bike path planned

The Carver Bike Path Committee met recently with the Department of Public Works, property owners, and Wareham’s bicycle committee to discuss signs for roads that will link Carver to a planned 50-mile system of bike paths to be called The South Coast Bikepath. According to town planners, bike path signs and pavement markings on Carver roads would begin at the Wareham line in South Carver and extend through Carver to the Myles Standish State Park, where a popular recreational bike path already exists. The committee has also had preliminary discussions with A.D. Makepeace Co. about including roads on company property. The South Coast Bikepath will be a continuous system of bicycle or multiuse paths connecting Rhode Island to Cape Cod. Segments of the bikepath already exist in towns such as Fairhaven and Mattapoisett.
