URI Bike Path Extension Officially Opens Monday 11/18

Join us Monday morning at 11am at the Mackal Field House for a ribbon cutting ceremony and the official opening of the William C. O’Neill Bike Path extension to URI.

After months of anticipation the path will have a couple new miles of fresh pavement for cyclists, runners and walkers to enjoy. This new extension will link the existing stretch of pavement between Larkin Pond Road and Ministerial Road to Route 138, adding approximately 2 miles to the existing 7.8 miles of path. It will also add a direct link to Kingston between Peace Dale, Wakefield and Narragansett, allowing users to access the locations by foot or pedal on nearly 7 miles of car-free infrastructure.
