In 2009 we conducted a corridor survey to survey the conditions along the railroad bed. Many of the issues can be seen in the photographs taken along the route.

In 2010 the committee was able to fund a feasibility study. The contract to perform the study was awarded to VHB. That study has been completed and the results are available here.

Following the feasibility study Wright Pierce was contracted to perform a planning study to develop a comprehensive plan for implementing the Merrymeeting Trail. The draft results of this study are available by clicking the images below.
