[Fwd: Meeting tonight with DCR on Lower Falls Bridge project]  Andrew M. Fischer
 Aug 19, 2009 08:11 PDT 

This footbridge is part of a proposed bikepath that will lead from old
Grossman's in Wellesley to Riverside station. It is a major modal
transp. link that local Newton NIMBYs are opposing.

I know the notice is late but some bicyclist turnout would be great.
