Heads up everyone, seems the DCR will be doing a bit of work that might affect the bike path for the next couple weeks, see below.
Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) crews will begin lead-abatement work on about one mile of decorative fencing between the bicycle/pedestrian pathway and the Charles River along Memorial Drive in Cambridge. During the work, bicyclists and pedestrians may experience minor detours.
Lead abatement is the first step in DCR’s plan to replace the roughly 5,700 feet of embankment fence, which is decaying. The $2 million project, to be funded through DCR’s capital budget, will replace the existing fence with new, historically correct, fencing. The fence replacement is expected to begin in March and be completed by the end of June.
