open in viewer

The Manchester Lawrence Rail Trail conversion project is a rail-to-trail conversion that aims to convert the abandoned Lawrence portion of the rail corridor into a greenway. This greenway will bring recreational space, transportation opportunities, economic benefits and community identity to the local communities. Through site visiting, interviews with local activists, geographical information system analysis and other research, the project team completed a detailed information booklet which includes site analysis, trail design recommendations and cost estimates. The purpose of this booklet is to help local government and community groups plan and implement this rail trail conversion.
