Caboose May Grace Blair Square

Scout Harrison Smith of Troop 14 appeared before members of the Rail Trail Committee Monday night to float his Eagle Scout Project of a brush removal along the trail from Washington Street to Mayflower Landing. The project will take place in mid-May. Emmon Powers has dropped his project of eliminating invasive non-native fish in Chicken Brook along the trail and replacing with brown trout due to the lengthy requirements of the Conservation Commission. Powers will instead run a fishing derby. Scout James Hathaway is undertaking a guard rail fence along  a brook between Cross Street and Summer Street.

The trail committee will begin work in mid-May on the final 2.5 miles of trail between Church Street and the Sherborn line with a base layer of street grinding between Lowland and Washington Streets. Other areas will receive a base of gravel due to conservation restricted land.

Several new signs will be posted at either end of the 8 Arch Bridge soon. If passed at town meeting in May, work could begin later this summer atop the arches with new pavement and railings.

In other news Chairman Robert Weidknecht announced that Peter Barbieri of the Celebrate Holliston Committee told him earlier last week that Celebrate Holliston would like to donate a caboose for use on the trail. The caboose would likely be placed at Blair Square and would be used as a toilet facility with a holding tank. Timeline details were not available.
