January, 2012: The Assabet River Wildlife Refuge kicked off a transportation study at a workshop at the visitors center in November. Being considered is which of the 3 bicycling allowed refuge roads might be re-paved. Also, possible bike access across the 'south section', connecting to the Mass Central Rail Trail ROW. A follow-up meeting will be held on February 7, 2012. More details on the calendar page.

November 9, 2011:   The 25% ARRT design plans for Acton-Maynard were delivered to the MassDOT this morning by AECOM, the engineering firm that has the engineering contract.
