A section of the Charles River Path in Watertown will close temporarily for maintenance by the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR).
Beginning Monday, Oct. 19, the Upper Charles Greenway Multi-Use Path between Galen and Bridge streets will be closed for pathway reconstruction and restoration, the DCR announced. The work is expected to last from Oct. 19 to Nov. 9.
“This is one of the older section of multi-use path along the Upper Charles River and suffers from root damage and pavement deterioration,” the announcement said. “The path will be reconstructed within its current footprint, and erosion control will be installed to protect the Charles River.”
In the meantime, users of the path can use the path on the opposite side of the river, DCR officials said.
