Dedication of Phase III, William C. O'Neill Bike Path, Wakefield to Narragansett, July 27 2011
On a glorious summer day a short but critical section was opened by RI Governor Lincoln Chafee (who rode his bike to and from the ceremony). This section takes riders safely across Rt 108 and under Rt 1. It was good to see George Redman--"the Father of the Bike Path"--present. George worked tirelessly back in the day to get the first RI bike path (the East Bay Bike Path) built, which became a model forerunner of the other bike paths around the state. RI's bike paths are a State treasure.
