Three mile-long bike paths have been constructed along I-89 in New Hampshire at a total cost of $200,000. The 8 ft width of the path is wider than necessary, but was also cheaper to build since full-size equipment could be used. The contractor was able to use normal drilling equipment and blasting techniques to blast and cut down sections of ledge rock. Crushed rock subbase was placed in low-lying areas to provide a flatter grade. A standard 8 ft wide paver was used to put down the 2 in. thick layer of asphalt. The path allows bikers, hikers and horse back riders an alternate transportation route.
