Rep. Stanley Announces $300K Grant for Wayside Rail Trail

The City of Waltham received $300,000 in MassTrails Grants from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Conservation and Recreation Department for design/engineering/permitting of the Waltham Wayside Rail Trail. The Waltham Wayside Trail project proposes to build a 2.74 mile paved shared-use path connecting with the existing trail at Edge Hill Road and extending East to Beaver Street. The project includes (7) roadway treatments, the reuse/restoration of (2) bridges (Linden Street bridge & timber trestle bridge) and a new accessible walkway connection from Linden Street. The proposed Waltham Wayside Trail is part of the regional 23-mile Wayside Trail and the greater Statewide Mass Central Rail Trail.
