Bikeway Detour starting May 13

The Town of Lexington has announced that a section of the Minuteman Bikeway in Lexington will be closed beginning Monday May 13th, 2013. The closure is from the Seasons Four driveway to the Woburn Street crossing. A signed bikeway detour will be provided for users. The bikeway will be closed 24/7 for the project duration which is anticipated to be approximately 3 weeks. The work entails the replacement of a collapsed culvert causing local property flooding. We appreciate your patience and cooperation for this necessary project. A map of the detour is available on our website at

Annual Bikeway Cleanup in Lexington

Time: 9:00 - 11:00AM

We will cover the entire Lexington portion of the Bikeway, picking up all litter, removing some of the alien invasive plants and trimming back encroaching vegetation. Select from one of the following five starting locations on the Bikeway:

Bedford Street
Revere Street
Lexington Depot
Maple Street
Fottler Avenue
Leaders will be at each of these locations to guide the cleanup of a section of the Bikeway. The cleanup usually lasts about two hours. Volunteers are asked to bring a pair of work gloves, pruning shears, and water to drink. Leaders will provide trash bags.
