MASS. DCR AND CITY OF CAMBRIDGE
WATERTOWN-CAMBRIDGE GREENWAY PROJECT
Tuesday, June 9, 2015 – 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
West Cambridge Youth Center
680 Huron Avenue, Cambridge, MA
The Watertown-Cambridge Greenway is an effort recently launched with the joint purchase of a former B&M Railroad line, the Watertown Branch, by the City of Cambridge and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) to create a multi-use pathway and greenway. This purchase, which includes the former railroad right-of-way from Concord Avenue in Cambridge, through the Fresh Pond Reservation, under Huron Avenue, and into Watertown, will be developed into a pedestrian and bicycle path, helping complete the important regional connection linking the Charles River path system and the Minuteman Bikeway.
At this meeting, DCR and the City of Cambridge will provide background information about the project, now at a pre-conceptual stage of design, and obtain public input.
The public meeting presentation will be viewable the following day on DCR’s website at
http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/dcr/public-outreach/public-meetings/and on the City of Cambridge website at http://www.cambridgema.gov/CDD/Projects/Transportation/watertowncambridgegreenway.aspx.
