In the Fall of 2018, the Town of Bourne’s residents approved $50,000 in funding to support the development of Phase 1 of the Bourne Rail Trail.

Phase 1 is a one-half mile segment—stretching from the Canal Path at the Railroad Bridge to Monument Neck Road in Gray Gables. While a modest stretch of path, Phase 1 represents the significant first phase for the project. This extension will directly connect Gray Gables and nearby residents of Mashnee Island with the Canal Path.

Check back here over the coming months for further updates on the status of Phase 1.
