July 16, 2018 – Trail Construction in Concord Update

Construction begins this week on the intersection near the 99 Restaurant in West Concord. In the past few weeks, work has continued on the trail in Concord with landscape plantings and work on the parking area near downtown West Concord (see photo below). Please note that Phase 2C (Concord) of the trail is NOT open.  It is unsafe to enter an active construction site. This section of the trail is scheduled to open in spring 2019.

Here is information from the town of Concord:
