Norwell’s Jacob’s Pond will have a new dock and bridge by the end of this weekend, thanks to the town’s Community Preservation Committee and Conservation Commission. David Osborne is the Chairman of the Conservation Commission.
“We’re installing a 75-foot long dock with an L on the end. The L is to accomodate a setup that would allow ADA-compliant people to come down in their wheelchairs, launch their own kayaks, and get in them without any assistance,” Osborne says. “We’re also adding a small bridge to Jacob’s Island. I don’t think there’s been any for 20 years or so. That will be part of our extended walking trails here.”
The project’s cost, around$100,000, is coming from Community Preservation Committee funds.
