Rail Trail Committee Meets
by Bobby Blair 3/20/13
Boy Scout Ben Flanagan of Troop 73 was back before the Rail Trail Committee Wednesday night to finalize plans for his Eagle Scout Project.
Flanagan's (above left) project includes the building of an informational koisk at Blair Square along with the installation of stop sign's at trail intersections with local streets. Flanagan's project will begin in April.
Scout Jake Lavin of Troop 185 in Wellesley (Lavin is a Holliston resident) requested the committee's approval for his Eagle Scout Project of landscaping and planting along the Rail Trail near Hopping Brook Road. Lavin received approval and plans to begin his project in June.
Plans are currently under way for the revamping of both the Arch Street Bridge along with the Exchange Street Railroad Bridge. Paving so that four legged creatures can pass over the bridge will be installed along with hand railings.
Committee member Herb Brockert noted that the Milford Highway Department will be donating ground pavement this summer for use on the trail.
