The Seacoast Rail Trail is moving forward with the goal to create a biking and walking trail that would connect eight communities from Portsmouth to Seabrook. The New Hampshire Executive Council approved a proposal for $5 million in federal funds to purchase 9.6 miles of abandoned railroad on Wednesday.
The Department of Transportation, which is overseeing the plan, already owns the southern section of the corridor. The total trail is expected to be 14.29 miles.
