Design work began on April 11 and will continue through early May on the Northern Strand Community Trail, running through Everett, Malden, Revere, Saugus and Lynn.

The trail remains open while this work is being conducted. The field work includes environmental resource area flagging by staff from LEC Environmental; traffic counts for roadways that the trail crosses by Stantec Engineering; and a topographical survey by SMC Surveyors. These firms, under the leadership of landscape architects Brown, Richardson, and Rowe, have been hired by the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs to design and permit the Northern Strand Community Trail.

Meetings Planned For May/June

In May and June, stakeholder engagement sessions will be held in each of the five communities to allow residents the opportunity to provide comment on trail design and construction.
