A group of Kennebec Valley residents is pursuing federal funds to lease an aband
A group of Kennebec Valley residents is pursuing federal funds to lease an abandoned 6.2-mile stretch of rail bed that follows the Kennebec River between Solon and Bingham, which would be used as the cornerstone of a trail system. The proposal is one of three, covering 44 miles of abandoned or little-used railways, currently being considered for funding, and the Maine Department of Transportation is expected to decide on the requests by October 15. The state has purchased 154 miles of the estimated 390-500 miles of abandoned rail in Maine, and is currently trying to buy another 68 miles. Details.
