DCR Grant Pays for New Compacted Surface Along Rail Trail

Danvers and Wenham received a $50,000 state grant to put down a compacted stone dust surface on their respective sections of the rail trail.

State officials and community representatives from across Massachusetts gathered in Danvers Friday to join with town officials and local supporters of the Danvers Rail Trail. The others were also there to receive their own grant awards.

Danvers and Wenham received a $50,000 grant from the Department of Conservation and Recreation to place a compacted stone dust surface as a top layer along the length of the recreational trail.

Once the new surface is put down it will represent a continuous surface for the 7.6 miles along the trail from Topsfield Center down to Brooksby Village in Peabody, where the Danvers trail ends.

The work will be done by Iron Horse Preservation Society this summer and the trail will remain open to the public.

I totally object to taking state money to contribute to those who are destroying the American infrastructure. No wonder Chna is getting ahead of us. American citizens helpng to tear up railroad tracks and send them to China. Tracks that would help the recovery in this country. Some Chinese had an idea of how to con Americans into destroying their own country.
