As reported on salemnews.com, Peabody's project to convert an old rail bed to a trail is now complete and open for enjoyment.
The city paid $162,000 in Community Preservation Act funds to design the bikeway. The rest of the more than $3 million cost was shouldered by the state and federal government. MassHighway has overseen construction, and the state will convey the path to the city when its work is done.
