This report serves as a national resource guide to assist communities in utilizing new and existing brownfield programs to understand and address environmental clean-up issues that may inhibit the conversion of unused rail rights-of-way (ROW) into multi-use trails. RTC's objective was to address brownfield concerns by researching appropriate legal, funding and construction issues related to rail-to-trail conversions. The findings of this research will assist local communities to resolve potentially complex contamination occurrences by employing successful strategies outlined in this report.
