Rail Trail Construction


The construction crews have mobilized and are resuming work from where they left off in December. Work will start at the Wayland town line and will move easterly towards the Weston Transfer Station.

The anticipated work schedule will include the track and tie removal then grading and installation of the gravel sub-base, followed by paving, loaming and seeding.

Demolition is anticipated to take approximately 4 to 5 weeks, weather dependent. Grading and gravel installation should be another 3 to 4 weeks, weather dependent. Paving will be conducted by a separate contractor and is anticipated to follow the grading and sub-base work.

The removal of the rails and ties and installation of the gravel road is the Eversource access road project. The paving is funded by the Mass. Department of Conservation and Recreation. Once the paving is complete, this section of the trail will become a part of the state's Wayside Rail Trail. Residents can follow the progress of this development through the Rail Trail Advisory Committee.

Active Construction Site - No Access

The rail corridor is now an active construction site. Work is anticipated to occur 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 and will not interrupt electric service.

It is important to remember that the utility corridor is an active construction zone and unauthorized access during construction is not permitted. Weston's conservation land is open, but residents need to be cognizant of the construction zone and closed access to the utility corridor.  There will also be several staging areas set up, including Plain Road, Gun Club Lane, Concord Road, and Church Street.

Any construction concerns can be addressed directly with Eversource by calling 800-793-2202 or via email to
