For safety reasons, the Cochituate Rail Trail will be closed to the public for the duration of construction. Please do not enter upon the CRT until the project is complete, or until an announcement has been made from MassDOT or the Town of Natick that the trail is open.
This decision is a change from the previous plan to open sections of the trail between August and October. This decision was made by the project contractor and MassDOT because of frequent use by the public of sections that are closed, and the concern that opening and closing the trail is leading to public confusion. In addition, the project team has determined that recent clearing of vegetation has left the trail surface in an unsafe condition.
The Town will continue to share construction updates at natickma.gov/crt. Thank you for your cooperation.
