What about sidewalks on Trapleo Rd? and granite curbs save money in the long run I see side streets with four houses on them and they get new granite and cement sidewalks.

I have heard that new Granite Curbing & concrete sidewalks will be installed on that stretch but not 100% sure

i have lived in Waltham for 26 years and am 77 years old. In good weather I walk from my house to the Belmont Studio. From Waverly Oaks Road to the old Gabler school there is no safe place to cross. I am not the only person who walks along Trapelo Road and would like some marking or sign along the way where we pedestrians could cross without playng guts football. in addition, there are areas where there is no sidewalk at all.

I agree with Annette. The crosswalks were covered over when Trapelo Rd was dug up. The sidewalk on the north side of Trapelo Rd. from Porter Rd to Forest Street has no curb, and vegetation is blocking half the sidwalk. The other side of the street from the Lawrence School to Forest Street has no sidwalk at all. Pedestrians are often seen walking in the street.
