Construction of the Eversource access road has started and is anticipated to last through early winter with final work to be completed in the spring of 2018. Mass. Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) is expected to pave soon after the access road is completed. This work will result in the Wayside Rail Trail.
The project area begins in Wayland and goes to the trestle bridge in Weston, near the Waltham town line. Unauthorized access to the utility corridor during construction is strictly prohibited. Weston's conservation land is open but residents need to be cognizant of the construction zone and closed access to the utility corridor.
Hours of construction are anticipated to be Monday - Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Weather or other unexpected circumstances may cause crews, from time to time, to work longer hours or on Saturdays. All work associated with this project will be located entirely within the existing rights-of-way. Construction activities include mowing, installing erosion control barriers, removing the existing rails and ties, grading, compacting, laying gravel, and then paving.
Additional information on the construction activities can be found by following the link below. The work that is being done now will result in the Wayside Rail Trail. Weston's Rail Trail Advisory Committee is currently discussing how best to accommodate the new recreation trail in Weston but is not overseeing the construction activities. Any construction concerns can be addressed directly with Eversource by calling 800-793-2202 or via email to TransmissionInfo@eversource.com.
