Bikeway Design and Construction

Services for the Construction of the a Six-Mile Bikeway at the Cape Cod Rail Trail

Weston & Sampson developed contract documents for the construction of a six-mile bikeway, which makes use of a former Old Colony Railroad right-of-way.

The bikeway follows the abandoned railroad right-of-way, traverses along four local roads, occupies an electrical transmission line easement, and includes six at-grade roadway crossings. The typical cross section consists of a 10-foot-wide paved bicycle path and three-foot shoulders.The project also includes the construction of bicycle lanes and a sidewalk along a portion of George Ryder Road and the reconstruction and realignment of the Old Queen Anne Road/Stepping Stones Road/Wilfred Road intersection.

The Chatham Spur links a previously constructed bikeway in Harwich with Chatham Center. All work was designed and constructed in conformance with the Massachusetts Highway Department’s Standard Specifications.
