Town of Acton Acton, MA
Assabet River Rail Trail Bridge Alternatives Study
BSC Group assisted the Town of Acton in analyzing alternatives for the construction of the Assabet River Rail Trail bridge over the MBTA Commuter Rail line in the Main Street (Route 27) area of South Acton. The bridge will improve access to the rail trail from the MBTA Commuter Rail parking lot and local residential neighborhoods and help to achieve the town’s goal of creating connectivity between the trail and the community. BSC’s structural engineers and landscape architects conducted a site visit and evaluated potential options for a new bridge and access routes. BSC contributed to the public participation process by working with a resident Advisory Committee and attending public meetings, where options were presented to the community and Selectmen.
