Herb Brockert reported to fellow members of the Rail Trail Committee Wednesday eve that the base layer of recycled asphalt and gravel in conservation areas will be laid during the next ten days all the way to the Sherborn line. A layer of stone dust from Church Street to the Sherborn line will be applied later this fall.

Members also approved from existing funds, monies for pedestrian signals at Washington near Whitney Street, Lowland Street and Central Street. Brockert who also serves on the 8 Arch Bridge Committee noted that reconstruction will begin later this fall with a completion deadline of May 31st 2018. A washout has occured on the trail at the crossover at the new Pulte Homes Development on Washington Street. Developers will be notified to retify the situation.

Holliston's new town counsel has advised the trail committee relative to encroachments on the trail. Chairman Robert Weidknecht produced a two page document listing forty five addresses along the trail where abuses were found. The list includes businesses as well as residential properties. Those listed have been rated on a prioirty list of high to low. The description of the encroachments include septic systems now on town property, snow disposal, trash yard waste and firewood stored on the trail property. Parking along with fences on the trail dominated the list. In most cases a letter for removal will be sent to owners.
