Bike Trail Tunnel Opens In Northampton


State and local officials participated last week in the opening of a new $4.4 million railroad underpass linking heavily-used bike trails in Northampton, Massachusetts.

The city, also, was awarded a $400,000 grant by the state to address climate change vulnerability.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Northampton Mayor David Narkewicz. He explained the significance of the new tunnel connecting bike trails once-separated by railroad tracks used by high-speed trains.
