Washington Secondary Bike Path
West Warwick, RI

The Washington Secondary Bike Path is the state's longest bike path at 19 miles from Cranston Street in Cranston to Log Bridge Road, just past Route 102, in western Coventry.  It is largely constructed along the abandoned Washington Secondary Railroad Corridor.  The facility is an important addition to the RIDOT network of bicycle facilities and will ultimately link to more bike paths that will extend into Connecticut.

Pare was hired by the Town of West Warwick to plan and design their portion of the Washington Secondary Bike Path.  Beginning at the Warwick/West Warwick line, at Providence Street and extending to the Coventry town line near Route 117, the West Warwick Section of the bike path traverses nearly three miles of the former railroad corridor.  This portion of the bike path included repairs and modifications to two old railroad bridges:  the 470-­foot-long Bradford Soap Works Bridge over the South Branch of the Pawtuxet River, and the 85-foot-long East Main Street Bridge.
