Bruce Freeman Rail Trail Phase 2B is the mile long segment and bridge across Route 2 from Acton to Concord. It turns out the final design cost for the bridges over Route 2 and Nashoba Brook will cost ~$1,050,000. Between Acton and Concord the Towns have or are appropriating $700,000 in design. That leaves a $350,000 funding gap.
The BFRT Phase 2B Bridge the Gap fundraising campaign has the goal of raising $50,000 of the $350,000 needed to pay for the Phase 2B design. Simultaneously the FBFRT will be asking the state legislators and the MassDOT to pay for the remaining $300,000. The FBFRT hope that the $50,000 raised from fundraising campaign will help show state legislators and MassDOT the strong public support that the BFRT has and entice the state to ante up the last $300,000.
