Midcoast Council of Governments has hired VHB to conduct a Feasibility Study for the proposed Merrymeeting Trail. The Feasibility Study will be complete by the end of May 2011.

Midcoast Council of Governments has hired Wright-Pierce to conduct a planning study. The overall goal for creating the planning study is to develop a comprehensive plan for implementing the creation of the Merrymeeting Trail.

We are able to do the corridor study thanks to the following funding:


The Merrymeeting Trail now has its own website thanks to Victor Langelo, Topsham Resident. Please visit us at and sign-up for our E-newsletter.


The Town of Richmond has applied to Maine Department of Transportation’s Quality Community Program for construction funding. This funding will be used to construct a segment of the Merrymeeting Trail, which will serve to connect the village area. Good luck to Richmond!!!
