The Boston-Worcester Air Line Trail is a proposed multi-use trail from Framingham to Worcester with with side trails to Marlborough and Berlin. The trail follows the route of the former Boston and Worcester Air Line Trolley. The trail would also utilize the Wachusett Aqueduct and the former second track of the rail line from Framingham to Clinton for parts of its route. Boston & Worcester Electric Companies (B&W) was a holding company for several streetcar companies between Boston and Worcester, Massachusetts. The main line, built by the Boston and Worcester Street Railway, was an interurban streetcar line partly on the old Boston and Worcester Turnpike (now Route 9).
Starting from Lyman Street; A kiosk is located here along with some old RR tracks and benches. The old paved road travels east along a residential/commercial corridor for only 0.3 miles before ending at E Main St.
