NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council's acceptance of a land donation on Tuesday clears the way for the Mohawk Bike Path to run from Williamstown to Harriman & West Airport.   The city is planning to piggyback the 1-mile section in North Adams informally named for the late state Rep. Gailanne Cariddi, a longtime bike path proponent, onto the 2.5-mile route in Williamstown to tap into soon-to-expire federal scenic byway money.   "With the acceptance of this gift of land, we will be able to move this project side-by-side with Williamstown and take advantage of this funded MassDOT project," Mayor Richard Alcombright read from his communication to the council.
