Capital City Trail will temporarily close to replace waterway culvert

The Capital City Trail will temporarily be closed beginning on Monday, October 6th to replace a waterway culvert east of Longford Terrace in the City of Fitchburg. The project is anticipated to take approximately 2 weeks to complete.

The trail will be closed in the City of Fitchburg from the intersection of Fish Hatchery and McKee Roads to the west end of the Longford Terrace underpass tunnel. West bound bicyclists are asked to use the side path on the north side of McKee Road, and then travel northwest on road via Yarmouth Greenway and Longford Terrace to the west ramp at the Longford Terrace underpass tunnel. East bound bicyclists would exit the trail at the Longford Terrace underpass tunnel west ramp, travel south on Longford Terrace, east on Yarmouth Greenway to the side path on the north side of Mckee Road and continue on to the Fish Hatchery Road overpass bridge. Trail users should expect to encounter construction activity around the Longford Terrace underpass location and are encouraged to walk their bikes when using the west ramp to access the trail.
