Despite the traffic worries, Windham officials see the rail trail as something that is having good benefits for the town.
“The rail trail has turned out to be a really nice attraction,” Letizio said. “The rail trail is growing to the next level. We want it to grow to the next level.”
Derry hasn’t experienced similar traffic and pedestrian safety issues yet, Derry Rail Trail Alliance president Erich Whitney said.
But Derry also is seeing many people use its section of the trail.
“I am surprised at the amount of public support and demand for this resource,” Whitney said. “People are taking ownership and pride in the trail and for that I am incredibly grateful and thankful.”
