Rail Trail Connector Plan in Brewster to be Unveiled

BREWSTER – The final design for a multi-use pathway connector extending from the Cape Cod Rail Trail to Cape Cod Bay will be unveiled Thursday night in Brewster.

The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and the Town of Brewster will present the plan and take questions from the public.

Preliminary designs plans and concepts were presented at a meeting last fall.

The path would be available for bicycles and pedestrians.

State officials have said it could help relieve parking pressures at Linnell Landing and Crosby Landing

The trail would run from the existing Rail Trail near Route 6A and continue to the ocean.

It would be 10 feet wide with a maximum grade of 5 percent to ensure accessibility and provide a safe crossing across 6A.

The plan also takes into account the need for sensitivity to the surrounding environment.

The meeting to review the proposal will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Brewster Town Hall.
