DCR Meeting: Watertown-Cambridge Greenway Project

(Please note: The entrance is not on Grove Street. Parking and entrance are off of both Kondazian and Crawford streets.)

The Watertown-Cambridge Greenway is an effort launched with the joint purchase of a former B&M Railroad line, the Watertown Branch, by the City of Cambridge and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) to create a multi-use pathway and greenway.  This purchase, which includes the former railroad right-of-way from Concord Avenue in Cambridge, through the Fresh Pond Reservation, under Huron Avenue, and into Watertown, will be developed into a pedestrian and bicycle path, helping complete the important regional connection linking the Charles River path system and the Minuteman Bikeway.

At this public meeting, DCR and the City of Cambridge will present an update on the design review process and the proposed design at the 25% completion phase.

The public meeting presentation will be viewable the following day on DCR’s website at 

http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/dcr/public-outreach/public-meetings/and on the City of Cambridge website at http://www.cambridgema.gov/CDD/Projects/Transportation/watertowncambridgegreenway.aspx.  If you have comments you wish to submit after the public meeting, please visit  http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/dcr/public-outreach/submit-public-comments/ or write to the DCR Office of Public Outreach, 251 Causeway Street, 6th Floor, Boston, MA 02114.  The deadline for public comments is Tuesday, December 22, 2015.
