Amesbury-Salisbury - Shared Use Paths

In January, 2019, E.T.& L. Corp. was low bidder on a $3.2 million MassDOT project to construct two shared use paths in Amesbury and Salisbury, as well as make improvements to the City of Amesbury Visitor’s Center. Work on the Ghost Trail Extension involves constructing a new shared use path from the existing crosswalk on Elm Street in Amesbury, under I-95 through an existing culvert, to the intersection of the existing Ghost Trail with Rabbit Road in the Town of Salisbury. Work for the Garrison Trail Extension consists of the construction of a new shared use path on the west side of Rabbit Road in the Town of Salisbury from the Ghost Trail to the intersection of Route 110 (Elm Street) and Merrill Street. Improvements to the Visitor’s Center include paving the existing gravel parking lot, reconstructing sidewalks and wheelchair ramps along adjacent streets, installation of monuments that incorporate bridge elements from the original Whittier Bridge, drainage improvements, and construction of stairs connecting the Amesbury Visitor’s Center to the William Lloyd Garrison Trail Shared Use Path, adjacent to Route I-95 northbound. Work on this project is expected to be complete by October, 2020.
