Grossman's and bikes

As reported by the TAB, there is proposed development on Washington Street in Wellesley, right over the Newton border on the former Grossman's site.

One bike/ped hook to the project (and there are sure to be others): Wellesley is looking at the project to provide mitigation funds that might be used to rehabilitate an old bridge on a proposed rail trail. (Search on "Trail Project" for the relevant entry.)

I'm just learning about the rail trail project. It's currently on hold while abutters litigate claims to the rail right-of-way.

Apparently, it would be a great way to get folks to the Riverside T station.

More as I learn more.
