New Waterfront Bike Path Could Be Coming to Fall River
You may already be enjoying the Quequechan Bike Path in Fall River, but a new waterfront walking/biking trail could be joining it in Spindle City.
According to Fall River Development News, the city is working to secure funds that would create a new pedestrian/bike path from the Tiverton line heading north towards Heritage State Park.
The new four-mile path would be called the Mount Hope Bay Greenway and would connect with another proposed bike path in Tiverton that would extend from the Sakonnet River Bridge.
That path would be about 2.5 miles long and would connect with the Aquidneck Island Bikeway, which runs all the way into Newport.
Meaning if both paths get approved, you could conceivably ride your bike from Newport to Fall River.
Currently the city of Fall River has issued a Request for Qualifications, meaning a feasibility study, site survey, alignment options, conceptual design and cost estimates all need to be worked out. So no work is being done yet.
But if you are a biker, things are in the works to get you connected with pedal power.
If all paths being pitched come to fruition, one day you could be biking from Newport to Fall River, then eventually linking up from New Bedford out to Cape Cod.
That's a lot of biking!
