CONWAY — People passing the big CATs moving and smoothing earth along North-South Road this spring might be forgiven for thinking the discarded Route 16 bypass might have miraculously come back to life. But it turns out it’s not the bypass, but a “bypath.”

What they’re seeing take shape is the MWV Trails Association’s long-awaited, 2.9-mile North Conway Recreation Path, a multi-used trail that once paved and completed (hopefully ahead of schedule by late fall) will serve as a draw for the region, providing a place for outdoors lovers of all ages and abilities — and yes, along parts of the corridor that had once been planned by the state for the Route 16 Bypass.
