Project Description:
The Lee Bikeway would be a new bicycle facility (6.7 miles total length in Lee) consisting of both on-road and off-road sections from the Stockbridge town line to the Lenox town line. Off-road sections would consist of 10-ft wide pavement with 2-ft graded shoulders on each side. On-road sections would consist of paved shoulders (both directions) of appropriate width adjacent to the travel way. The current project concept is for three phases (from south to north): Phase 1 (607570) would consist of 3.18 miles on-road (Route 102) plus 0.93 miles off-road. Two sections of boardwalk are proposed (1000 feet total); one 60-ft bridge is proposed over an intermittent stream; and two sections of retaining wall are proposed (500 feet total). This phase of the bikeway would begin at the Lee/Stockbridge line and end at West Park Street in downtown Lee.
