Project Description:
The proposed project would extend the Vandenberg Esplanade to the School Street bridge thereby creating a link to Lowell’s 5.6-mile canal walkway system. The first section would start at the easterly end of the Vandenberg Esplanade and extend 1200 feet on a new pathway through the State park area (DCR). It would include a pedestrian bridge over Clay Pit Brook. It would then intersect the existing sidewalk on the State Highway right-of-way just before the mouth of Flagg Meadow Brook. The second section (1300 Ft) would be within MassDOT layout and would be included in the VFW Highway Resurfacing project (#605966). The third section of the walkway will diverge from the highway sidewalk onto DCR land and follow the existing river wall for 700 feet over a small portion of City land at the approach to the School Street (O’Donnell) Bridge. The new walkway would continue the standards and design of the existing Vandenberg Esplanade including walking surface, benches and park light fixtures.
