FALL RIVER — The Quequechan River Rail Trail is about to get a tiny bit longer, just in time for outdoor-fun season.

The 2-mile multi-use path, which runs through the heart of Fall River, is currently undergoing construction at the Narrows near the Westport line. An extension of the path will bring it exactly to Fall River’s eastern border with Westport.

Officially known as the Alfred J. Lima Quequechan River Rail Trail, the path popular with walkers, joggers, cyclists, skaters and more begins at Britland Park and travels along the Quequechan River’s path through the Flint. It crosses Brayton Avenue and continues along the South Watuppa Pond’s northern shore, coming to an abrupt end just beyond LePage’s Seafood.
