Add a pedestrian bridge over the Assabet River connecting the Baker Ave business parks to West Concord Village. Our 2010 Master Plan recommended such a bridge. After reading GPI's feasibility study provided to the town (1/24/17), I learned the proposed bridge would connect 1,500 employees working in the Baker Ave business park and over 4,300 primary jobs within a 1 mile radius of the West Concord Commuter station. The bridge would increase commuter use and bring more visitors in to support our retail in West Concord. The study shows the bridge could be located near the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail which would enhance bikers, joggers and walkers as well. The bridge would also mitigate pedestrians illegally crossing the rail road to access the Baker Ave business park and reduce walking time to our village by 1/4 mile. The report states costs range from 2M-3.6M depending on location and style bridge (truss, beam, or trestle).
