Please be aware the town has received notification that MassDOT will be installing sidewalks on Route 119 on both the Route 111 side (Main Street to Mill Run) and Route 225 side (Boston Road to CVS) in the near future. The Board of Selectmen will need to hold a public hearing on the sidewalk installation sometime in the next couple of months.
