McGovern Leads Groundbreaking for New Bike Path in Worcester

Friday, May 29, 2015

 

On Thursday, Congressman Jim McGovern (MA-02) led a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Gardner Kilby Hammond bike path in Worcester. McGovern was responsible for securing the $3 million in federal funding to create the lighted bike path. Additional roadway improvements to Kilby and Gardner streets are also included in the project.

“Today is a truly exciting day. This bike path and the sports field that will follow it are so important to the Main South neighborhood,” Congressman McGovern said. “This project will bring more access to green space and outdoor recreation opportunities for families in this neighborhood and is just another step toward a rejuvenated Main South. I am proud to work with great partners in the City, Clark University, and the Main South Community Development Corporation to help us revitalize this neighborhood. I look forward to coming back in the spring for a ribbon cutting on the bike path and a ground breaking for the field."

The bike path will provide additional pedestrian and bike access for the Main South neighborhood and the project will also include sidewalk replacement, curb resetting, additional crosswalks, shared roadway markings, roadway mill and overlay, and pavement repairs as needed.

McGovern joined other community leaders including Worcester City Manager Edward Augustus, Jr., Worcester City Councilor Sarai Rivera, MassDOT’s District Highway Director Jonathan Gulliver, National Grid Massachusetts President Marcy Reed, Main South CDC Executive Director Steve Teasdale, Clark University President David Angel, and Erwin “Dusty” Miller from the Boys and Girls Club.
