After much anticipation, progress on Phase 3 of the Bike Path, connecting Wakefield to Narragansett, is underway! The project was officially advertised on January 13th, with the Bid Opening scheduled for February 3rd. This should put the Phase 3 ground breaking sometime in early summer. Check back for updates!
WELCOME TO THE WILLIAM C. O’NEILL BIKE PATH!
Welcome to South County's William C. O'Neill Bike Path, one of the premiere paths in the North East. The path was formerly called, and is still frequently referred to as the South County Bike Path. Presently, the path is 7 miles in length but when completed, it will be approximately 8 miles. From the Kingston train station, the path follows the easement of the old Narragansett Pier Railroad passing through the villages of Peace Dale, Wakefield, and Narragansett and will end near the Narragansett Town Beach.
Thanks to all who made it out for this wonderful night of art, music and festivities. Here are some photos from the event:
