Over the course of the next few weeks, residents may notice geotechnical crews and equipment accessing the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail corridor to collect subsurface soil samples. The crew members are from Jacobs Engineering and New England Boring with whom the Town contracted services to advance the design for the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail.  Some trimming of vegetation will be required for access to the boring locations. The vegetation trimming and boring plan have been approved by the Conservation Commission. The trimming and soil borings will occur entirely within the rail corridor/Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) Right of Way. We expect the work to be completed by mid‐September.
