ASSABET RIVER RAIL TRAIL: A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place on August 10th
, 2:00 p.m., at the Acton end of the Assabet River Rail Trail. Mass Department of Transportation (MassDOT) Secretary/CEO Stephanie Pollack, was joined by state and town officials to say a few words. Everyone was eloquent, and the crowd of roughly 100 people stayed to the end despite the hot summer day. Their reward was cake and lemonade.
|D'Allessandro Corp. was the construction company. Despite the|
ceremony, there is still an unfinished section about 200 yards
long, just north of Concord Street. May be completed by
Labor Day. The delay is due to contaminated soil.
|Cake! Printed with the ARRT logo and the names of the|
five towns connected (sort of) by the rail trail. Reality is
a north end and a south end, but nothing for Stow, in the middle.
|The gathered crowd of about 100 people. More than two|
dozen rode bicycles to get there. Others had walked the
Trail from Maynard to Acton.
|Maynard has in mind making the trail a "Trail of Flowers"|
by allowing volunteers to plant daffodils and tulips and
other spring blooming bulbs along the trail. This photo is
of a volunteer planted plot older than the Trail, corner
of Summer, Brooks and Maple.
