City officials and engineers walked the Belfast and Moosehead Lake railroad Friday, May 18, to begin formulating a plan to build a trail along the city owned railroad corridor.

The walk began at the corner of River Avenue and Field Street before picking up the B&LM railroad underneath the Route 1 Armistice Bridge.

City Planner Wayne Marshall said the purpose of the walk was to give city officials, engineers from Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. and the public — although no one from the public attended — the chance to walk the 2.5 mile railroad corridor. Once a feasibility report is submitted by the engineers the city can begin considering what options to pursue to build a trail along the railroad.
